Maná has long been lauded for both their heart-rendering love ballads and politically inspired songs, like “Vivir Sin Aire” and “Somos Mas Americanos,” respectively. It’s part of what makes Maná Maná. Their ability to speak from a gamut of human emotions and translate that kind of poetry into expertly crafted music is a gift not to be taken for granted. President Barack Obama, for one, isn’t about to let another year pass by before singing their praises properly by inviting the best-selling Latin rock band of all time to perform en la Casa Blanca.
