“Flor de Toloache’s new bilingual album Indestructible pushes the boundaries of mariachi music and its instruments through reimagined pop covers, originals and original collaborations.
It’s a fusion fest starring vocals, lead violin, trumpet, vihuela and guitarron graced by the likes of John Legend (singing en español!), Alex Cuba, Josh Baca of Los Texmaniacs, Las Migas, Sinuhé Padilla and R&B singer Miguel.”
~ MARISA ARBONA-RUIZ – NPR First Listen
Latin Grammy® nominees, Flor de Toloache continue to win the hearts of music fans both mainstream and traditional mariachi fans alike through their distinct vision and enlightened interpretation of traditional mariachi instruments. The band’s diverse ethnicities and musical backgrounds are transcending culture and gender by forging new paths for mariachi music. The New York City based band and first all-women Mariachi, is led by co-directors Mireya I. Ramos, (founder) on violin and Shae Fiol (original member) on vihuela.
Having performed at Coachella and a NPR Tiny Desk Concert, this Latin GRAMMY-winning, New York-based ensemble is one of the finest all-female mariachi groups on the planet, with “a performance style that captures all the power and emotion you’d hope for.” (NPR Music).
Flor de Toloache is lead by vocalist/violinist Mireya Ramos and vocalist/vihuelist Shae Fiol.
The group began as a trio named for the delirium-inducing Mexican flower used as a love potion for generations. As it has grown in notoriety, the band has expanded to as many as ten members depending on the setting, forming a truly global ensemble with musicians hailing from Mexico, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Cuba, Australia, Colombia, Germany, Italy, and the United States.
