    Who would have thought that Manu Chao, after his outstanding debut in 1998, would be able to add to that? I didn't - and I've been taught better, there was Proxima Estacion: Esperanza ("Next Station: Hope") in my CD player no three pieces old! At the age of 40, the son of Spanish emigrants sounds younger, fresher and more playful than many half the age


    So the album is simply fun from the first to the last second. Reggae, South American folk and a pinch of Rai are the spices, danceable good mood music the basis. The master often quotes himself with a wink, but only to create something new from old elements. The cosmopolitan's linguistic diversity extends to six languages. In addition to French, Spanish and English, there are now also texts in Portuguese, Arabic and Portunol, a Spanish-Portuguese hybrid, spoken in corresponding border areas. Border areas are what the former member of Mano Negra is concerned with anyway, that's where he feels most comfortable. But what do I write? Dance out and enjoy - Manu Chao enriches the world and tears down boundaries! - Felix Von Vietsch
