Maná perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Feb. 27, 2019.

The legendary group performed "Rayando El Sol," "Mariposa Traicionera" and more on Wednesday night (Feb. 27).

In two invigorating performances of some of their greatest hits, iconic rockers Maná took to the stage on Wednesday night’s (Feb. 27) Jimmy Kimmel Live! The Mexican group captivated with a skillful medley, beginning with their 1990 breakthrough classic “Rayando El Sol” -- which is also the title of their 2019 North American tour.

As the band transitioned to their 2002 slow-jam “Mariposa Traicionera,” frontman Fher Olvera took a few seconds to show off his black shirt with the words, “Todos Somos Dreamers” (“We Are All Dreamers”), a pointed message to the nearly two million undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. by their parents as children and whose status is being threatened by the Trump administration. “Y que viva los dreamers!” Olvera shouted, which translates to “May the dreamers live.”

Maná then capped off the first performance with their 1992 upbeat rock track, “Oye Mi Amor.” In a bonus set, the quintet performed one of their most recent classics, 2006’s brooding ballad “Labios Compartidos.”
