Trio Ellas doesn’t so much work against stereotypes as circumvents them, with a musical proficiency that allows the group (Suemy Gonzalez, Nelly Cortez and Stephanie Amaro) to space among mariachi artists like Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlan to Mariachi El Bronx, while courting mainstream artists like Ben Gibbard and Lady Gaga.
