Latin pop stars, Mana, will be recognized with a place on the historic RockWalk.  The Mexican quartet will be inducted on Monday, Sept. 17 at 2 p.m. at Guitar Center’s Hollywood location on Sunset Boulevard.

“Mana has made a huge impression on the Latin rock scene over the years, that it’s only right they take their place on Guitar Center’s RockWalk,” said Dave Weiderman, Chairman of Guitar Center’s RockWalk.

Billboard magazine has heralded Mana 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 Gonzalez’ Sergio Vallín and Juan Calleros are the recipients of four Grammy’s and seven Latin Grammys.

As the newest RockWalk inductee, Mana’s handprints will reside alongside the handprints, signatures, and faces of other equally accomplished musicians and innovators such as Eric Clapton, George Martin, Jimmy Page, Iron Maiden, Carlos Santana, Johnny Cash, Van Halen, AC/DC, Aerosmith, Marvin Gaye, James Brown, B.B. King, Stevie Wonder, Run-D.M.C. and Queen, among numerous others.
