Having performed at Coachella and on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert, this Latin Grammy-winning, New York-based ensemble is one of the finest all-female mariachi groups on the planet. Flor de Toloache began as a trio named for the delirium-inducing Mexican flower used as a love potion for generations. As they have grown in notoriety, the band has expanded to as many as 10 members depending on the setting, forming a truly global ensemble with musicians hailing from Mexico, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Cuba, Australia, Colombia, Germany, Italy, and the United States. Their highly anticipated new album Indestructible (2019), produced by 11-time Grammy-winner Rafa Sardina (Stevie Wonder, Lady Gaga, Rodrigo y Gabriela, among others), premiered via NPR First Listen, where NPR’s Marisa Arbona-Ruiz said: “Flor de Toloache’s new bilingual album Indestructible pushes the boundaries of mariachi music and its instruments through reimagined pop covers, originals, and original collaborations.”

Indestructible follows Flor de Toloache’s critically acclaimed and Latin Grammy Award-winning sophomore release, 2017’s Las Caras Lindas, and features a number of notable collaborations, including the all-female flamenco quartet Las Migas, critically acclaimed multi-platinum singer/songwriter John Legend, Latin Grammy/Juno-winning singer/songwriter Alex Cuba, R&B star Miguel, and accordion virtuoso Josh Baca from Los Texmaniacs.

Announced as one of the official selection of WOMEX 2019, the world’s biggest showcase for world music, Flor de Toloache performed over 100 shows in 2019, touring Japan for the first time.

The New York ensemble and beloved press-darlings were also invited in 2019 to perform as special guests for the Grammy Museum’s inaugural Latin Music Gallery Exhibition ribbon-cutting ceremony, also paying a special homage to Linda Ronstadt with a magical mariachi presentation at the 42nd annual Kennedy Center Honors.
