Tryo – they’re truly green!

March 28, 2009

TRYO: On a roll...

TRYO: Eco friendly and on a roll...

Tryo is a French reggae band famous for singing about cannabis.

But that’s not the only ‘green’ they support…

They are also known for being super conscious of the environment, urging fans to cycle to their concerts.

The band members themselves use Vélib, the free bike scheme first made popular in Paris and now spreading around the world.

Eco-friendly Tryo’s latest album is even biodegradable (apart from the CD itself, of course!).

With phenomenal support in their home country and becoming more popular by the day in the rest of Europe and in Quebec, Tryo is also well known for their over-the-top live performances.

The ‘unplugged’ acoustic group consists of three French guitarists, a Latin American percussionist and a producer:

  • Guizmo (Cyril Célestin): Singer, composer – guitar
  • Mali (Christophe Petit): Singer, composer – guitar, accordion, piano, melodica
  • Manu (Manu Eveno): Singer – guitar, bass, oud, flute, clarinet, tables
  • Danielito (Daniel Bravo): Drums, djembe, darbouka, congas, guiro, cajón, bendir, bongos, violin
  • Bibou (Sébastien Pujol): Manager, sound engineer

Tryo uses dramatic and funny lyrics to criticise corrupt French politicians as well as world leaders (ex US President George W. Bush is one famous example).

The band’s ‘tolerant’ view on cannabis is especially clear on earlier numbers like La Main Verte (translated as ‘Green Fingers’) from their ‘Mamagubida’ album. However, the ‘herb’ references have become less evident in their later albums.

Tryo has sold around a MILLION albums worldwide and celebrated their tenth anniversary in 2006 with a nationwide tour.

The band has released three studio albums, a double CD, live album and two live DVDs.

Christophe Mali released a solo album ‘Je vous emmène’ in April 2006. Guitarist/songwriter Guizmo is also in the band Pause.
