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.
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.
