Flor de Tolache on the Brooklyn Bridge

M@A Parallels Series Presents Flor de Toloache

Music at Amherst proudly presents all-female mariachi band Flor de Toloache.

Latin Grammy-winning all-female ensemble and beloved press darlings, Flor de Toloache continues to win the hearts of mainstream music fans and traditional mariachi music fans through their distinct artistic vision and sophisticated enlightened interpretation of traditional mariachi instruments.

With diverse musical backgrounds, soaring vocals, and physical elegance, the women of Flor de Toloache cast a spell over their audiences, like their namesake flower used as a love potion in Mexico.

The New York City-based all-female quartet is led by Mireya I. Ramos on violin and Shae Fiol on vihuela. Performing on international stages from India, Asia to Europe, Flor de Toloache has toured the U.S. extensively, most recently with Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys, as well as the Arcs, Cafe Tacvba, La Santa Cecilia and Natalia Lafouracade.

“There should be fireworks named after this band, for all the intensity and color and life that bursts forth from Flor de Toloache.” –Marisa Arbona-Ruiz, NPR's First Listen

The box office for this performance opens on March 15, 2019. Ticket prices are $18 for the general public, $12 for senior citizens and $10 for students with valid ID. General seating. For a complete listing of upcoming Amherst College Department of Music events, please visit
