Radio Bemba Sound System, the new live album by the anti-capitalist musician Manu Chao, captures the exuberant energy of his live shows. It makes it clear why he and his sound system have become a flagship for the movement. His music fuses influences from Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa and the US in a manic aural assault.
The songs take up many of the main concerns of the movement.
This is a record of a crazed touring carnival of the oppressed, against the war, against the corporations and for a better world.
