Mana is a mega-popular Latin American rock band whose roots go back to Guadalajara, Mexico, where they started out in the 70’s and 80’s performing under the name Sombrero Verde. Their self-titled debut as Mana was released in 1987.
My brother introduced me to this tune recently (okay, well, tonight), which comes from Mana’s 2002 release ‘Revolucion de Amor’ (the album cover reminds me of Steve Earle’s ‘El Corazon’). A nice laid back tune, eliciting thoughts of sunshine &, margaritas, though my brother tells me it’s the story of a prostitute. Maybe he can fill in the details in the comments below….
