The women of Flor de Toloache fuse together influences from diverse genres and cultures to produce a unique and powerful take on traditional Mariachi music. “They don’t just sing; they could blast through mountains with their wails and gritos (shouts), and melt glaciers with the warmth of their gorgeous harmonies” (NPR).

Flor De Toloache
Latin Grammy® nominee and Latin Grammy Award Winner, Flor de Toloache has performed in several international stages from Asia to Europe and the U.S., continuing to win the hearts of both mainstream and traditional mariachi fans alike. They drew strong media attention during their 2015 and 2016 tour with The Arcs.
The band’s diverse ethnicities and musical backgrounds transcend culture and gender by forging new paths for mariachi music. Based in New York City this first all-female Mariachi is led by co-directors Mireya I. Ramos, (founder) on violin and Shae Fiol (original member) on vihuela.
Penned by Fiol, Ramos and Acosta, with the support of producers Felipe Fournier and Jacob Plasse, their 2017 album Las Caras Lindas is a sophisticated and bilingual musical twist that results in an eclectic mix of traditional and modern elements. The album won “Best Ranchero/Mariachi Album” at the 18th Annual Latin Grammy Awards, where they performed with Natalia Lafourcade.
