The sound of Manuel and his Music of the Mountains – a distinctive blend of lyrical romanticism and exotic Latin-American rhythms – first captivated British record buyers via a hit single in the shape of The Honeymoon Song. More hits followed, including a brilliant interpretation of the film theme Never On Sunday, and the out rapidly established itself among the nation’s top light orchestral favourites. Through ingenious usage of strings and a wide variety of Latin percussion instruments, Manuel creates and sustains a mood that can be soothing one moment and exciting the next. In short, he has perfected a style that he can really call his own no mean achievement in these days of stereotyped pop singers and beat groups. And unlike out-and-out pop. Manuel’s music has a durable quality that will ensure its popularity and acceptance with the general public well into the next decade.
