Biography

The story of the green potatoes started in 2002 in the city Cologne. Within two busy
and creative years playing lots of successful concerts the band developed its very
own style and a was supported by a growing fan base.

The breakthrough in the rhine region came in 2004 with two concerts broadcasted by
the public radiostations Funkhaus Europa and RadioMultikulti. In consequence the
band released their debut album “Oficialmente I legal” which sold more than 3.000
copies so far.

The CD joins the powerful latin-music mix of the band with critical and political

messages. For example the CD features a cover version of the song “Hier und Dort”
of the youth group Edelweißpiraten that offered resistance to the Nazi regime.
The sound of La Papa Verde maturated in the following playing concerts and festivals
and became a distinctive mixture of cumbia, ragga, rock and afrobeat. In 2008 there
second album “Ich verstehen nicht kann” was released and presented on their first
European Tour with concerts in Germany, Spain, France and Austria.

In 2009 La Papa Verde will be once again playing in Europe and on reknown festivals
like Chiemsee Reggae.
