Music and More
Mana is a huge force in music. Formed in Guadalajara, Jalisco, it has been releasing great albums since Falta Amor in 1989. Though it took some time for audiences to warm up to it, the group's album was a hit by 1990. In the United States, it reached No. 13 on the Latin pop charts. 1992's ¿Dónde Jugarán Los Niños? was a smash hit, selling over 10 million copies around the world. Mana routinely sells out huge venues throughout the US and Latin America. It is also more than a band. In the same way that U2 transcended music to become a cultural force, so has Mana. Its Selva Negra Foundation is dedicated to saving endangered animals and preserving the environment. The Foundation has partnered with the Mexican government on many such projects. Mana also endorsed US President Barack Obama when he ran for re-election in 2012.
