Mariachi Flor de Toloache is the first and only established all-female mariachi band founded in New York City in 2008 by Mireya I. Ramos.
Originally a trio, the band has grown to 9 members with all the essential and traditional instruments: violin, trumpet, guitarron (bass), vihuela (5 string guitar), and guitar. In addition, each members' cultural background adds even more diversity, with band members spanning the globe from Puerto Rico, to Mexico, Germany, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, and the United States.
Their goal of representing Mexican music and adding their own edgy and versatile sound comes together incredibly naturally and seamlessly. Although, as individuals, their talent has allowed them to grace stages worldwide from stadiums to acclaimed theater venues, they perform together like a band of sisters, with grace and vibrant beauty casting a spell over their audiences like the legendary and magical Toloache flower that is still being used in Mexico as a love potion.
Mariachi Flor de Toloache has performed for the Mexican Consulate, Queens Museum, El Museo del Barrio, the annual St Cecilia mariachi festival, annual Guadalupe festivities in dozens of churches, and recently a 5 week tour in Spain in the summer of '11.
