Latin Grammy® nominated sweethearts of Los Angeles, Trio Ellas have been making waves with a unique concept. Their sound comes from years of working with traditional mariachis blended with each member’s personal musical background. There are elements of jazz, pop, country, as well as vocal harmonies reminiscent of the Andrews Sisters era. They describe themselves simply as “three chicas exploring the music we can make with a violin, a guitar and a guitarron.” The young trio is composed of Suemy Gonzalez (violin and vocals), a graduate of USC's prestigious Thornton School of Music, Nelly Cortez (guitarron and vocals), a fourth generation mariachi musician and recreational pilot, and Stephanie Amaro (guitar and vocals), a versatile musician who performs and records in genres ranging from electronica to mariachi.
