"Queen of Hearts" is made up of three primary composers: Stefania Serna, Elizabeth Obando and Bonnie Smith.
Stefania and Elizabeth are Colombian born and have been brought up on Mariachi music since there were born. Bonnie is Australian born, she has travelled far and wide and has spent a huge part of her life in Latin America, including Mexico is where she learned to speak Spanish. She played many concerts in Mexico and has travelled from Jalisco to Veracruz to Chiapas to Morelia soaking up the music and culture.
These ladies met in Melbourne and their one thing in common, is their passion for Mariachi music. Not only does Mariachi music give them a platform in which to compose; but it gives them a platform in which they can express their deepest feelings, sufferings and desires. They come alive with this music and well....their passion for a little bit of drama is also an incentive to sing with corazon!
