Mana is again on tour, and concert tickets are available for sale. Maná is a pop rock band from Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, whose career has spanned more than three decades. They have earned three Grammy Awards, seven Latin Grammy Awards, five MTV Video Music Awards Latin America, five Premios Juventud awards, nine Billboard Latin Music Awards and 13 Premios Lo Nuestro awards. Mana's sound has been described as drawing on pop rock, Latin pop, calypso, reggae and ska. They initially received international commercial success in Australia and Spain and have since gained popularity and exposure in the US, Western Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. Their worldwide sales stand at more than 25 million albums as of 2011. Mana was formed in 1978 by José Fernando "Fher" Olvera (vocals) and Gustavo Orozco (guitars) along with brothers Juan Diego Calleros (bass guitar), Ulises Calleros (guitars), and Abraham Calleros (drums and percussion). They initially formed to play cover versions of songs by artists they admired. They called themselves the Green Hat Spies, but soon shortened this to Green Hat, and then, focusing on their Latin roots and Spanish-language repertoire, to Sombrero Verde (the Spanish translation of Green Hat).

In 1991, they added two new members to the group, Iván González on keyboards and César "Vampiro" López on guitar. Ulises Calleros no longer performed with the group, but became one of their managers. On October 27, 1992, the band released ¿Dónde Jugarán Los Niños?, an album that spawned several hits (including "Vivir Sin Aire," "Oye Mi Amor," "Como Te Deseo"). The band undertook an international tour with 268 concerts in 17 countries.

In 1994, Iván González and César López left the group. Fher Olvera, Alex González, and Juan Calleros continued to perform as a trio and released a live album titled Maná en Vivo with the collaboration of Gustavo Orozco on guitar, Sheila Ríos on vocals, and Juan Carlos Toribio on keyboards. In 1995, Sergio Vallín was brought in to replace López on guitar. The group released Cuando los Ángeles Lloran.

In 1997, the group released Sueños Líquidos, recorded in Puerto Vallarta and released simultaneously in 36 countries. The recording received a Grammy Award as Best Latin Rock/Alternative Album. They also released a retrospective album for distribution in Spain called Todo Maná. In 1999, Maná recorded an album and DVD of acoustic performances, titled Maná MTV Unplugged, as part of the MTV Unplugged series.

In September, 2000, Maná joined Carlos Santana playing "Corazon Espinado", from Santana's album "Supernatural" at the first Latin Grammys.

In 2002, in an effort to blend their sound with that of rock and roll from the sixties and seventies, the band recorded Revolución de Amor. They won their fourth Grammy for the album. The band released a new version of “Eres mi Religión” for the Italian market in 2003, as a duet with Italian musician Zucchero, and also performed with Zucchero in a new recording of his "Baila Morena". This same year they participated in the annual Pavarotti & Friends concert, along with Queen, Deep Purple, Ricky Martin, Andrea Bocelli, Zucchero and Bono.

In 2006, after a four-year hiatus, they released their seventh studio album, Amar es Combatir. It reached #4 on the Billboard Top 200 in its first week, selling over 60,000 copies in the first week (according to Billboard.com). Their first single off the album, "Labios Compartidos", rose to the top of the music charts upon its debut in July, when the group played the song live at the Premios Juventud.

In 2008, Maná released Arde El Cielo, in both a CD and CD/DVD package. This release shows the band performing live during the Amar es Combatir Tour in support of the Amar es Combatir album.

In April 2010, Maná announced on their Facebook page that they are working on a new album to be released on December 7, 2010. Mana later updated their website and announced that their upcoming album, "Drama y Luz" is set for a tentative February 2011 release. And for the third time on February 11, 2011 they announced that Drama y Luz would be release on April 12, 2011 after five years of waiting from their last album. On April 12, 2011, this album was released in three formats CD, CD with DVD, and 12" LP vinyl record.
