Flor De Toloache

Flor de Toloache stuns at the crossroads of fusion and mariachi girl magic. Whether intimately airy or ice-crackingly powerful, their intricate vocal runs and harmonic alchemy seem to defy logic with equally clever instrumental arrangements by the singers themselves. These are exciting times for artists baring their musical truths through the cross-cultural evolution of music. 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. It’s a fusion fest starring vocals, lead violin, trumpet, vihuela and guitarron graced by the likes of John Legend (singing en español!), Alex Cuba, Josh Baca of Los Texmaniacs, Las Migas, Sinuhé Padilla and R&B singer Miguel.

Mariachi Flor De Toloache

Flor De Toloache

The record that started it all, Latin Grammy Nominated in 2015, the self-titled debut album showcases deep and melodic mastery of instruments and vocals as well as a generational understanding of traditional Mariachi, successfully passed down from Mireya’s Mariachi father and an extensive river of influences from Mireya’s music-head mother Carmen. This is all threaded together by the modern r&b / soul influences of Shae Fiol, whose songwriting shines as she translates her tracks into the rustic and folky ambiance of Mariachi. Beautiful original arrangements give wings to trumpetists Julie Acosta, Jackie Coleman and Anna Garcia, who combine with Domenica Fossatti’s dazzling flute work to achieve orchestral hights. The cinematic violins come courtesy of Luisa Bastidas and Eva Lou Vossmerbaumer who are joined by Lila Downs band members George Saenz and members of NYC’s Banda de los Muertos. An auspicious start indeed.

The Arcs feat. Mariachi Flor De Toloache

“We got to New York City and we hired a mariachi band, thinking that some old-timers were gonna show up, and all of a sudden, in walk eight mid-20s girls. It was an all-girl mariachi band,” Auerbach says. “And they were just loud, very huge personalities. We put them on the track; they killed it. We decided to try them on another — same thing happened. We did another, and another, and then I said, ‘Hey, can you guys sing?’ And they were like, ‘Of course we can sing.'” Dan Auerbach – The Arcs
