Click here to watch now or go to:
Formed in Cuba by sisters Trini, Cusa and Olga, this “Trio de las Hermanas Márquez” was created in 1933 by Trini Márquez who, at an early age, sang in her parents musical group, till she decided one day to create her own group with her sisters. They toured many countries performing on the most prominent stages of Cuba, Latin America and Canada, enlarging their repertory with songs written by them and other Latin American composers. Las Hermanas Márquez where one of the most popular musical groups much loved and appreciated on the island during the decades of the 40s and 50s: the golden age of Cuban music. The sisters found additional fame outside of their native Cuba by moving to New York City in their later years, the remaining sisters Trini and Nerza even singing on T.V. commercials on Spanish and English channels.
Las Hermanas Marquez's music is infused with the spirit of their island origins. In fact, they're often found performing some classic material from throughout Cuba's lengthy musical history, tackling a number of styles with consummate ease and an enthusiastic spirit that belies their advancing years.
