Born in France as the child of a Spanish family, Manu Chao (José-Manuel Thomas Arthur Chao), started his music career as a street performer. Manu spent most of his childhood in Boulogne-Billancourt and Sèvres communes.
Besides love songs, the main theme in many of Manu Chao's songs are about migrants and discrimination.
The singer wore a t-shirt on which it was written "Sulukule will not keep silent" (Sulukule Susmayacak) in order to support the Romans whose houses were being demolished at the time in the scope of an urban renewal project in his concert in Bayonne in France.
