Awilda and Mildred Rios were born and raised in Brooklyn, NY and are of Puerto Rican descent. Educated in Puerto Rico as well as New York, the sisters are fluent in both English and Spanish. They began performing at age five when their mother enrolled them in ballet classes. Their passion for singing and dancing would continue to grow throughout their school years.
Their professional debut was in New York singing back-up in legendary clubs such as The Limelight, Cat Club, and Passions. They later met Mickey Garcia (producer of Judy Torres, Cynthia, and many more) who signed them on MicMac records as one of the label’s first recording artists.
Together, Awilda and Mildred wrote and arranged their first release entitled “You.” This release took them to perform not only in New York and the tri-state area but other places such as Puerto Rico, Florida, and California.
Subsequently, this sexy duo released their other hits “Hold Me,” “Are You Looking For Love,” and “I Don’t Want You Back.” All of these releases were written and arranged by the Rios Sisters (except “Are You Looking For Love”).
The Rios Sisters love to perform and combine their own unique style with strong audience participation. “We believe that people need to feel our songs because they all convey a positive message,” say the sisters.
