French- Spanish artist Manu Chao to perform at BSA tomorrow

DL DESK, Dhaka
French- Spanish artist Manu Chao to perform at BSA tomorrow

Renowned French- Spanish Artist Manu Chao, will perform tomorrow at the National Theatre Hall of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) in Segun Bagicha of the capital.

Alliance Française de Dhaka is organising the event on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of ‘Francophonie’ with the support of the Embassy of France in Bangladesh and BSA.

Manu Chao is a French musician of Spanish descent. He sings in Spanish, French, English, Italian, Galician, Portuguese and occasionally in other languages.          

Chao began his musical career in Paris, busking and playing with groups such as Hot Pants and Los Carayos, which combined a variety of languages and musical styles.

With friends, his cousin Santi and his brother Antoine Chao, he founded the band Mano Negra in 1987, achieving considerable success, particularly in Europe.

Mano Negra split in 1994 and Manu Chao spent several years travelling throughout South and Central America, recording new music. The songs were released as ‘Clandestino’ in 1998, under Manu Chao’s own name. Manu Chao’s first solo album is a celebration and defence of the displaced and immigrants, that mixed a European and South American perspective in an era of more globalised pop music.

Manu Chao’s last album ‘La Radiolina’ (literally “little radio” in Italian, but also “pocket radio”) was released on September 17, 2007. This was the first international release since 2001’s Próxima Estación: Esperanza. ‘Rainin in Paradize’ was the first single from the album. His song ‘Me llaman Calle’, written for the 2005 Spanish film Princesas, earned that film a Goya for Best Original Song.

The event is open to all. Seating is available on a first come, first served basis.

Where: BSA, Segun Bagicha

When: 6:30pm, tomorrow
