About this clip:
With performances at Coachella and a NPR Tiny Desk Concert to their credit, the Latin GRAMMY-winning Flor de Toloache is the finest all-female mariachi group on the planet, with “a performance style that captures all the power and emotion you'd hope for.” (NPR Music). They share this amazing bill with the fearless singer, songwriter, and guitarist Edna Vazquez, best known for her work with Pink Martini and her career as a solo artist.
Founded by vocalist and string player Mireya Ramos, Flor de Toloache began as a trio named for the delirium-inducing Mexican flower used as a love potion for generations. As it has grown in notoriety, the band has expanded to as many as ten members, forming a truly global ensemble with musicians from around the world. The band’s self-titled debut received a GRAMMY nomination, and their newest album Indestructible was nominated for a GRAMMY Award for Best Latin Rock, Urban or Alternative Album.
