Mano Negra was a music band fronted by Manu Chao. The band was founded in 1987 by Manu, his brother Antoine, and his cousin Santiago Casariego in Paris, France. The band was very influential in Europe during the early '90s reaching mainstream in several countries including Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, and Italy. Afterwards the band tried to independently enter the Anglo market with no success; by 1992 the band got involved in different projects in Latin America that now are considered epic adventures: Cargo 92, where the band traveled to several countries by ship and the Train of Ice and Fire that consisted in traveling to the deep and savage countryside of Colombia by train. It split up around 1995, but many members had already left by 1992.
