  • French-Spanish Artist Manu Chao Performs Live in Manila on March 27
  • The Alliance Française de Manille (AFM) celebrates its centenary year with an exciting live acoustic by French-Spanish artist Manu Chao featuring Filipino rapper and songwriter Quest as guest performer. 

    The special concert is happening on March 27, 2020 at the Samsung Hall, SM Aura Premier in Taguig City.

    Manu Chao, together with his guitarist Luciano Falico, will perform acoustic French songs from his 2004 album Sibérie m’était contéee

    The French-born musician of Spanish origin sings in many tongues: French, Spanish, English, Italian, Arabic, Catalan, Galician, and Portuguese and occasionally in other languages. His career in music started in Paris where he busked and played with a variety of groups showcasing different languages and musical styles.

    It was in 1987 when he founded the band Mano Negra with his brother Antoine Chao and some friends. After a successful run in Europe, the band broke up in 1995 and Manu became a solo artist. He toured on a regular with Radio Bemba, his live band.

    As a solo artist, he won a Latin Grammy for Best Alternative Song in 2007 for Me Llaman Calle and was nominated for Best Alternative Music Album and Best Music Video in 2008.

    Tickets for the special concert are available at all SM Tickets outlets nationwide and online through Orchestra tickets costs Php 550, while the Balcony is at Php 350.
