Making history as New York City’s first all-female mariachi band, Mariachi Flor de Toloache offers a delightful spin on a traditionally male-dominated Mexican musical genre. Performing as a full mariachi ensemble in traditional costumes, the band’s members hail from countries all over the world including Mexico, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Cuba, Australia, Colombia, Italy and the United States.
Wowing listeners at live shows around the country, the band’s fresh and edgy take on traditional Mexican music has garnered them fans far and wide, including Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys, who invited them to be a part of his side project band The Arcs. They also earned a Latin GRAMMY nomination for their 2014 self-titled debut album. While working to preserve the centuries-old tradition of Mariachi, they push the boundaries of the genre to bring it to new audiences.
