This is one of those songs that halfway through, you stop and ask who it is. Manu Chao sings in French, Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic, English, which he mixes with Salsa, Reggae, Ska, Rock and Punk - The Clash are one of his biggest influences.
His parents emigrated from Spain to Paris trying to escape Francisco Franco's dictatorship, after Manu's birth, they moved to the suburbs of Boulogne-Billancourt and SÃ¨vres. Chao started his musical career with Hot Pants, a French Rockabilly band that disbanded in 1985. Afterward, he formed Mano Negra with his brother and a cousin.
They toured mostly in Europe and South America, breaking up in 1995, which led to the beginning of Manu's solo career. - Snuh
