Great mix of world music with a strong latin foundation. On this album I think Chao sings in English, Spanish, French, possibly Portuguese and apparently he knows a few other languages that aren't on this album.
"Bongo Bong" off this record is one of my top ten favorite musical discoveries this year. It's gone onto nearly every mix CD I've made in the past six or so months (and that's a lotta mix CDs).
Manu Chao is super worldly. He knows more languages than most people will ever know, and sings in them nonetheless. His music, which involves way more than just his guitar and vocals, is unique and fun, and doesn't fit just one category. Also great summer music.
