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."
