A few years back at Glastonbury I was treated to the amazing happy music that is Manu Chao, thankfully last night I got to relive it when I saw Manu Chao at the Enmore Theatre in Sydney.
It was a latino hot box with the temperature rising quickly as the South American crowd partied and danced like their lives depended on it, as did Manu Chao.
The first encore came in at just after an hour of carnival dancing and singing, but they were anything but finished. Encore after encore saw the band play for almost two and a half hours, and the crowd was not letting up.
The whole theatre shook and sang along to every song of the happiest music my ears have ever had the pleasure of devouring.
Once they finally finished after about seven encores there was a buzz on the street as people piled out of the theatre continuing the party outside. If you've seen them live, you'll know what I mean, and if you haven't... make it your mission, you'll never be let down.
