Mariachi Flor de Toloache will kick off the music at 7:00 pm.
Latin Grammy Nominees Mariachi Flor de Toloache [website | Amazon.com] made New York City history as its first and only all-women Mariachi group. Founded in 2008, Mariachi Flor de Toloache is led by singers Mireya I. Ramos (founder) & Shae Fiol (original member). Reminiscent of the early days of mariachi, the group started as a trio: Harp, Violin and Vihuela.
Today, Mariachi Flor De Toloache performs as a full Mariachi ensemble. The members hail from diverse cultural backgrounds such as Mexico, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Cuba, Australia, Colombia, Germany, Italy and the United States. This defines their unique flavor and sound. The result of this cultural bouquet is an edgy, versatile and fresh take on traditional Mexican music. They coalesce as would a band of sisters, with a grace and vibrant beauty that casts a spell over their audiences not unlike the legendary Toloache flower still being used in Mexico as a love potion. While working to preserve centuries old traditions of Mariachi, their melange of the traditional and the modern pushes the boundaries of the genre and brings Mariachi music to new audiences.
Mariachi Flor De Toloache's critically-acclaimed self-titled debut album received a Latin Grammy nomination for Best Ranchera Album of 2015. Sharing the podium with legends Pedro Fernández and Aida Cuevas meant an embrace from the Latin Music Community. Following a highly-praised NPR Tiny Desk Concert, their collaboration with rock supergroup The Arcs landed them on "Late Show with Stephen Colbert" and BBC 2's "Later with Jools Holland."
Grammy award winners / Smithsonian Folkways recording artists Max Baca and Los Texmaniacs [website | Amazon.com] are the new worldwide ambassadors of Texas Roots music. Max carries the tradition learned as a thirteen-year member of the original kings of Tex-Mex, Doug Sahm's Texas Tornados, and as right hand man to accordion legend (2012 NEA National Heritage/five-time Grammy winner) Flaco Jimenez. Building on this foundation, Max formed Los Texmaniacs, combining traditional roots music with contemporary vitality and musicianship.
Max is the premier first call Bajo Sexto (a traditional 12-string guitar like instrument) player in the world. He has appeared on 11 Grammy-winning projects with artists as diverse as the Rolling Stones, Ricky Skaggs, Los Super Seven, Lila Downs, and Texas Tornados.
Los Texmaniacs' highly energetic live performances are equally contagious and diverse. The band represents Texas Roots music worldwide and is particularly proud of their four different tours to entertain the troops in Iraq, Afghanistan, Bosnia, and Kosovo.
New Mexico Culture Squared (NMC2) is a NM Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA) project to build and manage partnerships between DCA institutions and cultural organizations that will enhance the impact, effectiveness, attendance, and visitor experience of exhibits and programs of DCA entities.
