“As 3 Marias” is a portuguese music project that started in 2008 and it is inspired in latin music like Tango, Flamenco, Bolero, Bossa-Nova and Fado merged with other music imaginariums, that the portuguese music critic António Pires called “The new Invicta's Tango”.

The group is now formed by Cristina Bacelar (voice and guitar), Fátima Santos (accordeon) and Ianina Khmelik (violin). This three women met in other music projects like Frei Fado d'el Rei and Musa ao Espelho, where they found a common ground for their criativity.
