No doubt about it, multiple Grammy-award-winning band Maná are the undisputed kings of Latin rock, selling more albums and concert tickets than any other Latin rock act in history. Though the group has had several line-up changes since the mid ‘80s, Maná’s impact and popularity remains constant with fans young and old grabbing tickets and filling stadiums the world over to see Maná LIVE in concert. The band drew inspiration from The Police, Bob Marley and Led Zeppelin to create an eclectic fusion of rock, folk, pop, ska, reggae and funk to create a sound with widespread appeal. These varied influences are evident in chart-topping hits like "Rayando el Sol," "Como Te Deseo," “Eres mi Religión,” "Vivir Sin Aire," "Labios Compartidos," and their collaborative hit “Corazón Espinado" with Carlos Santana. Critics attribute much of their success to their spectacular concerts during which they consistently deliver a rousing set of fan favorites as well as new material. Charismatic frontman Fher Olvera’s heartfelt vocals still deliver the same emotional punch they did at the start of the band’s fame, while Sergio Vallin’s mesmerizing and seemingly effortless guitarwork, Juan Calleros’ inspired basslines (especially during the bands’ reggae-esque tunes), and drummer Alex’s Gonzales rousing drum solos always leave audiences wanting more. Despite the impressive length of time they’ve continued to make music and tour, Maná remains an ever-evolving band that will continue to attract new generations of Latin rock fans.
