Biography

The story of two young sisters from an isolated part of Guerrero state, on Mexico’s Pacific coast, began in the early summer of 2016 when the founders of a small Mexican record label –Discos Corasón– travelled to the town of Omepetec on the trail of a legendary bolero composer, Álvaro Carrillo, who was from the same region. What the two producers found was a hive of composers and musicians whose style retains the magic of the original costal boleros that fascinated the likes of Frank Sinatra in the 1950s. In this privileged, home-grown world of singers and composers, Las Hermanas García stood out from the crowd. They were recorded by Corasón in August of the same year, made their national debut in Latin America’s most prestigious arts festival in October and launched the CD to a university crowd of over 1,000 people in Mexico City in January 2017. During the past year, this success has been repeated time and again, both on the live stage and in the digital world, where the title track of their first album has registered over one million strikes on Spotify. They are now working on their second album, a tribute to costal boleros from all over Latin America, arranged according to the tastes of their native Costa Chica.

The first meeting of Discos Corasón with Las Hermanas García was on the roof of a building in the musicians’ quarter of Ometepec, a town with no recording studios or concert halls, where the three cultures –Amuzgo Indian, Afro Mexican and mestizo– share the same musical repertoire of romantic boleros and upbeat chilena dance music. Laura García had just turned 16 and her sister Celia was 14. Their father, Mariano, a virtuoso requinto guitarist and arranger, had taught them the repertoire that has made him famous in the region and, over the past eight years, the two girls had become part of his band. Following the recording of ‘Que Sepan Todos’ (Discos Corasón), Mariano now accompanies and directs his daughters’ band and is enjoying the regional and national success that he had always dreamed of. Their first interview with the national press was filmed by the La Jornada newspaper reporter and this post was viewed by more than one million people. It was a great start to their career!

Mariano García is Amuzgo Indian and the girls’ mother, Eugenia Santiago is a mestizo composer. One of the numbers on the band’s repertoire is a very personal version of the classic Álvaro Carrillo bolero, ‘Sabor a Mí’ a song which had been translated into 26 languages and has been a big hit recently for the Korean by band EXO-K. For the version by Las Hermanas García, Mariano translated the lyrics from Spanish into his native Amuzgo and, for the first time ever, the song is now bilingual – with Laura singing in Spanish and her father in Amuzgo.
