Me dicen El Clandestino...🎵

How can you not love Manu Chao?... I wonder 🙃 His songs are very powerful, Manu himself being a ''Clandestino'' in many ways. Being French with Spanish resonances from his parents and mixing many languages in his songs, makes him a unique interesting artist.

What I love more about Manu Chao is the vibe in his songs. They make you feel free one way or another. Even ''Mala Vida'' becomes a happy turn by using a jovial agitated vibe in his songs.

''El Clandestino'' addresses the subject of immigration, referring mostly to those who come from impoverished countries outside the European border, a part of those seen on the street being Clandestino [illegal].

The approach of Manu Chao is an empathic one, which resonates with a lot of immigrants and not only immigrants but also with those that feel in some way strangers on the land they are currently staying on.

The lyrics are just brilliant:

Solo voy con mi pena
Sola va mi condena
Correré mi destino
Para burlar la ley

Perdido en el corazón
De la grande Babylon
Me dicen El Clandestino
Por no llevar papel

Pa' una ciudad del norte
Yo me fui a trabajar
Mi vida la dejé
Entre Ceuta y Gibraltar

Soy una raya en el mar
Fantasma en la ciudad
Mi vida va prohibida
Dice la autoridad

Solo voy con mi pena
Sola va mi condena
Correré mi destino
Por no llevar papel

Perdido en el corazón
De la grande Babylon
Me dicen El Clandestino
Yo soy el quiebra ley

Mano negra clandestina
Peruano clandestino
Africano clandestino
Marihuana ilegal

Solo voy con mi pena
Sola va mi condena
Correré mi destino
Para burlar la ley

Perdido en el corazón
De la grande Babylon
Me dicen El Clandestino
Por no llevar papel

Argelino clandestino
Nigeriano clandestino
Boliviano clandestino
Mano negra ilegal

So, I send a warm hug to those who are living the hard way and I think that this song of Manu Chao has definitely made it easier for those feeling ''Clandestino''.
