This is the first french language-only album released by the world music superstar Manu Chao, in 2004. The title (with an intentional mispelling error) hides a "french argo" reference to Paris ("Si bérie m' était contée") and the album is considered as a surrealistic hymn to the french capital. It is one of the best Manu Chao's album with great rhythms and lyrics with a playful and tender mood. The song "Helno est mort" is dedicated to the memory of his friend Helno (Noel Rota), the singer of Les Négresses Vertes who died of a drug overdose in 1993. The covers' artwork is by the Polish caricature artist Jacek Wozniak. Enjoy a great album.
