After Touring With Café Tacvba, Flor De Toloache Just Dropped An Empowering New Video

Flor de Toloache NYC

Two years after scoring a Latin Grammy nomination for Best Ranchero Album, Mariachi Flor de Toloache has remained very busy. Last year, they recorded a live performance for NPR’s popular Tiny Desk Concert series that has earned nearly 800,000 views. Earlier this year, they appeared in a campaign for fashion design house Kate Spade and released their second album, “Las Caras Lindas,” which was recorded in just six days. Last month, “Las Caras Lindas” earned Flor de Toloache another Latin Grammy nomination for Best Ranchero/Mariachi Album. The all-woman quartet just completed a tour with Café Tacvba and are set to go on another tour next week — a seven-city, Dia de los Muertos-themed jaunt featuring Mexxrissey and La Santa Cecilia.

Looking forward to our next 5 shows with Cafe Tacvba in Cali! #flordetoloache #mariachi #cafetacvba

If you can’t catch the NYC-based foursome performing live, check out their new video for “Long Gone Girl.” An English-language ranchera with a country twang, the song is all about facing your fears and taking the first step toward the life you really want to lead. Like all the best rancheras, this song will probably hit even harder after a few shots of your favorite tequila.

Cardi B Kills Her Performance During Her First Solo Late Night Appearance On Kimmel In Brooklyn

If you’ve been watching “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” this week, you know that the talk show host has been doing shows from his hometown of Brooklyn, New York. The show, which is normally filmed in Los Angeles, is currently being shot at the famous BAM theater in Downtown Brooklyn. The Brooklyn Academy of Music, BAM for short, is a famous theater that has been in the area for well over a hundred years.

Jimmy Kimmel brought out Cardi B to perform her hit “Bodak Yellow” for his Brooklyn series.

Kimmel has been pulling all types of NYC talent to the show, so it was a no-brainer to bring the queen of the summer from her kingdom in the Bronx over to Brooklyn. I wonder if she took the 2/3 or A/C trains down to Barclay’s Center? Oh, right, she probably took her brand new orange Bentley.

Backstage, Cardi B was clearly pumped to be there.

She was excited AF to perform on Kimmel and it marked the first time she performed late night as a solo act, having only debuted for the first time a few weeks ago on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.” Cardi B and G-Eazy performed “No Limit,” a banger that also features A$AP Rocky.

Cardi B was ~ready~ for her first solo appearance on late night television.

Armed with an all-pink outfit — feather coat, shiny pants and pink shades — she came ready to rap in an outfit that summoned images of Brooklyn rapper Lil’ Kim in her heyday. Perhaps Cardi’s outfit was an homage to the rapper who set the stage in the 90’s for future female lyricists. Cardi has continuously shouted out female rappers Lil’ Kim and Nicki Minaj as inspirations, and many have returned the love as well.

Check out the video below for her full performance.
