This is an incorrect tag for Maná and a correct tag for Japanese artist Mana. If you are scrobbling Maná please fix your tags.


Mana is a Japanese musician and fashion designer, famed for his role as a leader and guitarist of the influential visual kei band MALICE MIZER. It is said that he is widely considered the figurehead of Japan’s Gothic Lolita fashion movement, as he helped popularize it. Now he works with his solo project Moi dix Mois.

Mana was born on March 19 in Hiroshima; his real name remains unknown despite the multiple rumours, one of them suggesting Manabu Satou. At an early age, Mana was introduced to classical music by his parents, who were both music teachers; classical music has remained an influence ever since. Mana has said that he started making music when he was in high school, at which time he listened to Mötley Crüe. Typically, Mana’s compositions blend Classical music (especially baroque music, featuring pipe organ and harpsichord; he also likes music by Johann Sebastian Bach) with heavy metal music, alternative rock, industrial music and other more unlikely elements such as french pop music. In a 2006 interview, Mana revealed that he has no formal training in music theory.
