Throwback Tuesdays: Manu Chao


Coming out of left field, here's an old school video from Parisian international super star Manu Chao. Around the world, Manu is the man, but he doesn't gain nearly as much recognition here in the U.S. It's not totally clear why that is, but the more that gringos travel abroad and hear about him, the more his legend tends to spread stateside. His lyrics are multilingual, his music is multicultural and you never know if he's going to break out in English, French, Portuguese, Spanish, or whatever.

Some folks will remember him from his early Mano Negra days when the band was based in Spain and scaring the shit out of the political right in that country.

Anyways, here's a video off of his landmark album, Proxima Estacion: Esperanza, which was released in 2000. Enjoy.
