Upon the demise of Mano Negra in 1995, Manu Chao formed Radio Bemba Sound System, expanded on his already impressive catalogue of songs and proceeded to establish himself as an international superstar.
On vocals and rhythm guitar, band leader, songwriter and all round musical genius, this is Manu Chao. Radio Bemba Sound System is Adjid Fahem on lead guitar, Gambeat on weird noises and bass, David Bourgnion on the drums, Gerrard on percussion, Julio on keyboards and other triggers, more vocals are provided by Bidji a.k.a. Lyricson, Roy Paci and Gianni play trumpet and trombone respectively on one of the catchier horn fills you are ever gonna hear, and finally that's B-Roy on the accordian.
Of the many bands that I have not yet seen, this one here is right there at the very top of my bucket list.
Manu Chao and Radio Bemba Sound System.
All around me is a War, War, War.
Something, something, something else,
Machine Gun, Whoa-oh, Machine Gun.
