The 11 sisters of Siervas are a rock band like 'nun' otherEleven nuns take the stage wearing traditional black-and white habits but are anything but old school as they belt out songs to the ringing of electric guitar and a rock 'n' roll beat.Known as "Siervas," the band was born in a Peruvian convent three years ago and now travels far and wide to perform.Siervas recently traveled to Southern California and drew 4,000 people when they headlined a Spanish-language Catholic music festival.Their name Siervas -- Spanish for "the servants" -- comes from the convent where the band was formed and still lives.At first, they composed and played music together as a hobby after spending days praying with incarcerated women and the poor in Peruvian shantytowns.When Siervas had enough original music they compiled a CD. The band's popularity comes at a time when the Catholic Church and other religious organizations are seeking to draw younger people.
