Maná’s Alex Gonzalez Explains How Band Has Drawn New Generation of Fans” – Ryan Seacrest

“That Maná Sizzle Hits A New Degree: An Edgier Sound Sparks New Fresh Praise… Maná is currently enjoying a moment. The band’s ninth studio album, “Cama Incendiada” has occupied the top slots of the Latin Pop charts since its debut in early May and has been No. 1 for the last four weeks… Part of that edge comes from the band’s political stances. They’ve never shied away from speaking out on difficult topics.” – Los Angeles Times

“Maná, proved, yet again, why they’re the most beloved Latin rock band in the world. Remarkably consistent in their sound, yet still exhibiting growth and range on Cama Incendiada (which was just certified platinum), it’s no surprise that Maná has sold out Staples more than any other act in music, regardless of language. And yet, three decades after they started as a tiny garage band in Guadalajara, Fher Olvera, Alex González, Sergio Vallín, and Juan Calleros still know exactly where they came from… ‘[Donald Trump] said we were trash, he said that the people who came from Latin America and Mexico are rapists, thugs, and drug dealers,’ said Olvera of the presidential hopeful, with palpable indignation. ‘Those were his words’….And then, amid boos directed at Trump, Olvera changed his tone into one of empowerment. ‘…just remember that he insulted our fathers, our mothers; he insulted everyone…. When you go out to vote, which is soon, you know what you have to do.” – Billboard

Billboard magazine has heralded Maná as “the most widely sold and heard Latin band in the world. Having formed in Guadalajara, Mexico in 1986, the quartet of Fher Olvera, Alex González’ Sergio Vallín and Juan Calleros have gone on to be global ambassadors for the Latin Rock genre, while selling over 40 million albums. To date, Maná has been recognized by their musical peers with four GRAMMY and seven LATIN GRAMMY Awards. With the recent release of their new album “Cama Incendiada” and its historic first single Mi Verdad” – featuring Shakira, Maná now holds an impressive nine #1 albums and ten #1 singles (more than any other band in the history of Billboard’s “Hot Latin Songs” chart). The band’s ability to connect with fans through album sales and sold-out concerts around the world lead the New York Times to declare that the legendary band from Mexico has “redefined ‘crossover’ in Latin pop”.
