About Flor De Toloache
“Not only a prime example of mariachi itself, but how this group of mujeres is makes the genre accessible to all.”

Latin GRAMMY Award-winning New York-based all-female ensemble Flor De Toloache continues to win the hearts of both contemporary and traditional mariachi music fans alike through their distinct artistic vision and sophisticated, fresh interpretation of mariachi classics. The group’s diverse ethnic and musical backgrounds transcend cultures and break barriers by forging new paths.
Much like the Toloache flower—widely known for its use in Mexican ‘love potions’—the ladies of Flor De Toloache cast a spell over audiences with their soaring vocals and electric stage presence. Led by co-band directors Mireya I. Ramos on violin and Shae Fiol on vihuela, Flor De Toloache has graced international stages from Chenai, India to Paris, France and has toured extensively throughout the U.S. as a supporting Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys‘ new project The Arcs, as well as Café Tacvba, La Santa Cecilia, Ozomatli and Natalia Lafourcade.
