These rock-and-roll sisters have won the hearts of the public with their talent and the testimony of their radiant and joyful faith.
A group of 11 sisters formed the band (called Siervas, spanish for servants) in a Peruvian convent three years ago. The band has an impressive international following.
At first, they composed and played music together as a hobby, after spending days praying with incarcerated women and the poor in Peruvian shantytowns. The sisters practice together twice a week and each nun also practices daily on her own.
When Siervas had enough original music they compiled a CD. That led to a concert performance that attracted local media attention in Peru and then invitations to perform in nearby Colombia and Ecuador.Also read : Nuns Who Grow and Smoke Weeds For Medical Purpose

This band, based in Lima, was founded in 2014. The religious sisters come from eight countries and are in their 20s to 40s. They say they grew up on rock ‘n’ roll music and hope their songs reach younger generations of faithful. They has embraced modern technology and marketing strategies to spread their music across the world.
Their ministry goes beyond music and includes humanitarian acts of service just like Mother Teresa did. They include prison visitations, missionary visit in schools, supporting the bereaved or fellows involved in calamities such as floods, droughts etc just to mention a few.
Siervas recently travelled to Southern California and drew 4,000 people when they headlined a Spanish-language Catholic music festival.
