Mariachi Flor De Toloache was greeted by a very enthusiastic crowd at the San Jose Mexican Heritage Plaza on Sunday October 30, 2016. It was part of the San Jose Jazz Fall Concert Series at the La Ultima Parada: A Celebration of Life on the Day of the Dead. Their emotive songs are a mixture of mostly traditional ones and modern influenced songs done mostly in Spanish but some English. Mariachi Flor De Toloache are an indie multicultural all women mariachi group that was founded in 2008 and based in New York City. They are co-led by Mireya I. Ramos (founder) and Shae Fiol (original member), as well as, Julie Acosta on trumpet and Eunice Aparicio on guitarron.
