Latin Grammy winning, New York Based all-female ensemble Flor de Toloache continue to win the hearts of both progressive and traditional mariachi music fans alike through their distinct artistic vision and sophisticated, enlightened interpretation of traditional mariachi instruments. The female quartet's diverse ethnicities and musical backgrounds have also transcended culture and gender by forging new paths. Like the legendary Love Potion the Toloache flower is used for in Mexico, the ladies of Flor de Toloache cast a spell over their audiences with soaring vocals and physical elegance. The group is led by co-band directors Mireya I. Ramos on violin and Shae Fiol on vihuela. Together, they have graced international stages from Chennai, India to Paris, France, and have extensively toured the U.S. as supporting act for Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys' new project The Arcs, as well as Cafe Tacvba, La Santa Cecilia, and Natalia Lafourcade.
"There should be fireworks named after this band, for all the intensity and color and life that bursts forth from Flor de Toloache."
—Marisa Arbona-Ruiz, NPR's First Listen
Lone Piñon is an acoustic conjunto from Northern New Mexico whose music celebrates the diversity and integrity of their region's cultural roots. Using violins, accordion, quinta huapangera, bajo sexto, guitarrón, tololoche and vocals in Spanish, English, Nahuatl, and P'urépecha, the group has revived and updated the Chicano string band style that once flourished in New Mexico, bringing a devoted musicianship to Northern New Mexican polkas and chotes, virtuosic Mexican huapango and son calentano, and classic borderlands conjunto.
Flor de Toloache's New Mexico tour is made possible in part by a grant from the Western States Arts Federation (WESTAF) and the National Endowment for the Arts.
