The Mavericks, the eclectic rock and country group known for crisscrossing musical boundaries with abandon, has gone through three distinct phases since it was founded in Miami in 1989. An initial period of heady success marked by big hits and critical acclaim in the ‘90s. A long hiatus starting 2003 when the musicians each went their own way. And finally, a triumphant reunion in 2012 which held long enough for them to recently celebrate the band’s 30th anniversary.
Now, The Mavericks have ushered in the fourth phase of their evolution with the \#1
Billboard debut of their first-ever, all Spanish album, En Español, released on the
band’s own Mono Mundo label. Although all 12 tracks are in Spanish, as the title
suggests, the collection represents a diversity of musical styles and cultural
traditions, from tender boleros to brassy mariachi to reimagined Afro-Cuban
classics. Seven of the tunes are familiar gems drawn from the vast Latin American
songbook, while five are originals written or co-written by Malo.
Like the band’s entire body of music, this one album cannot be boxed into a single
category. The songs are as diverse as Latin America itself, and as cohesive as the
ideal of the American melting pot. To season this rich musical paella, The Mavericks
add their signature country/rock/Tex-Mex flavors and a refreshing spontaneity to
the mix. En Español flips the band’s usual fusion formula, which adds a striking
assortment of genres – salsa, ska, norteño, mariachi, and much more – to its sturdy
rock/country base. Now, the foundation is solidly Latin with streaks of irreverent
rock and twangy guitars running through it, all branded with the unmistakable
