About "La Main Verte"

La Main Verte by Tryo Tryo (pronounced [tʁijo]) is a French-language 'unplugged' ska acoustic band, popular in Europe and Quebec, with three French guitarists, a percussionist, and a producer: Guizmo, Christophe Mali, Manu Eveno, Daniel "Danielito" Bravo and Bibou.

Tryo are popular in France partly due to their politically charged lyrics, whilst also showing a fun side with a range of humorous songs, especially in live performances.

They take a left wing stance, criticising various French politicians such as Charles Pasqua (named in corruption scandals concerning suburban low cost housing or HLM) and Jean-Marie Le Pen and world leaders (George W. Bush, for example) in their music. The band has a "tolerant" view on cannabis, demonstrated by "La Main Verte" from the Mamagubida album. Drug references are reduced in their later albums.

They have sold 900,000 albums. They had their 10-year anniversary in 2005, followed by a nationwide tour. Tryo have four studio albums, a double CD live album and two live DVDs.

Band members were also active in independent work. Christophe Mali released a solo album Je vous emmène in April 2006. Guitarist and songwriter Guizmo was part of the band Pause.

In August 2012 they released new album called Ladilafé, a tribute to Patricia Bonnetaud who died in February 2012. This is the first album featuring DJ Catman.
