Manu Chao (born José-Manuel Thomas Arthur Chao on 21 June 1961 in Paris, France) is a singer of French and Spanish (Basque, Galician) origin. Chao is a sensation who manages to sing his infectious tunes in no less than seven languages – more if he feels like it. For those playing at home: the list goes French, Spanish, English, Italian, Galician, Arabic and Portuguese.

From his early work with the English influenced rockabilly group Hot Pants to his breakthrough with the band Mano Negra, Chao’s sound is mostly characterised by energetic, lively rhythms and a distinct informality which allows the audience to get involved and feel close to his sound and energy.

His unique taste, adaptability and love of the sounds of the street has made him  one of the most in demand live performers in the world and has seen him headline festivals the world over. Hits are extensive, but it really is all about the occasion and energy that Chao will bring to the stage. It doesn’t matter what language you speak – as long as you come ready to dance!
