Mavericks to perform songs from ‘En Español’

The Mavericks will perform Jan. 22 at the Brown County Music Center.

Last September, the Americana Music Association honored The Mavericks with the Americana Trailblazer Award. It was part of the Americana Music Association’s Select Class of 2021 Lifetime Achievement Award Honorees.

The Mavericks will perform songs from their first Spanish-language album, “En Español.” at 8 p.m. Jan. 22 at the Brown County Music Center in Nashville.

Rolling Stone’s David Wild said, “In any language, The Mavericks are a group like no other and Raul Malo remains a vocalist who speaks fluently and directly to the heart.” The Pittsburgh Post Gazette compared Malo with Ritchie Valens, George Jones, Roy Orbison and Elvis Presley.

Malo, who writes songs and sings, leads the band that was born in 1989 in Miami. His family, from Cuba, has served as an inspiration for the group’s music style, which includes claves (sticks) and string band. Christened Raúl Francisco Martínez-Malo Jr., Malo is the son of Cuban exiles and grew up in Miami’s Little Havana.
