Mambrú was a male popgroup from Buenos Aires, Argentina. They saw both local & international success from 2002 until 2005 when they disbanded. In total, they released 3 studio albums.

Members[edit]

The band originally consisted of 5 members:

  • Pablo Silberberg
  • Germán Tripel (Tripa)
  • Emanuel Ntaka (Manu)
  • Gerónimo Rauch (Gero)
  • Milton Amadeo

Amadeo left the band in 2003 to pursue a solo career.

History[edit]

The band was formed in May 2002, following the outcome of a reality TV show Popstars. Over 4,000 young men auditioned in the Club Hípico Argentino, and in October 2002 the final selection released their first album, self-titled Mambrú, which went triple platinum selling over 120,000 units.[1]

They went on to release two more albums, and performed live throughout the country. In December 2002, they performed a joint concert with Bandana in Vélez Sársfield stadium. In July 2003, Milton Amadeo left the band to pursue a solo career. The remaining four continued, achieving awards which included Premios Gardel- Best Album for a Breakthrough Group, Premios Gardel- Best Album for a Pop Group,[2] Martín Fierro- Best TV-Formed Group.[3] They went on to tour in both Paraguay and Chile, and culminated with a nation-wide tour of Argentina entitled Cantarte (To Sing To You). They played in every single Argentine province, in a tour that spanned 2004-2005. Their aim was to 'sing to the entire country', and local bands were recruited to work as supporting artists in their various hometowns.[4]

In August 2005 they disbanded, citing a desire to pursue solo careers.
