Maná omar cruz

Mexican rockband Maná’s roots go way back, to 1975, when an earlier formation was playing under the name Sombrero Verde. As Maná, they had their first hit in 1991 with Rayando El Sol, off their second album 'Falta Amor'. The band toured extensively and found even bigger success with their third album, 1994’s 'Donde Jugaran Los Niños?', which turned them into Latin rockstars. From 1997 onwards, their fame spread into the US and the rest of the world, partly due to an MTV Unplugged session and a collaboration with Carlos Santana on his album 'Supernatural'. Meanwhile, the band has put four Grammy’s, seven Latin Grammy’s and five MTV Awards Latin America to their name, among others, and sold over 25 million records so far. They released their latest, the long-awaited 'Drama Y Luz', in 2011.
