Legendary International Spanish Rock Group
Maná origins date back to a band called Sombrero Verde, whose members José Fernando (Fher) Olvera, voice, Gustavo Orozco, the electronic guitar; and the Calleros brothers: Juan Diego, on bass, Ulysses, on electric guitar and Abraham, on drums came from Guadalajara. In 1975 they decided to get together to play different songs from groups from groups they admired, including The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, The Police, among others.
At that time, a movement in Mexico began called "Rock en tu idioma" (Rock in Your Language), a business strategy from some record companies aimed at young people to develop rock in Spanish. The trend, imported from Argentina and Spanish, was endorsed by the pioneering work of groups such as Soda Stereo, Enanitos Verdes, Mecano, Nacha Pop, La Union, Radio Futura, Hombres G and Zas (Miguel Maeos' Band). As a result,several Mexican bands, made up mainly by young people, were formed with musical influences from American and European groups. Thus arose the movements leading bands in Mexico: Caifanes, Maldita Vecindad, Café Tacuba, and among them Maná who achieved success not only locally but also internationally.
