Villalobos Brothers and Flor de Toloache


Concert Details


“[The Villalobos Brothers] played with exuberant intensity for the appreciative audience . . . with their heads bowed . . . fingers jumping and feet tapping, they weren’t just playing music, they were living it.”

The Forward

“The all-female Mariachi Flor de Toloache is set to revolutionize the Mexican genre from inside-out—from literally wearing the pants to expanding the boundaries of its folk sounds.”

New York Daily News

The Villalobos Brothers have been acclaimed as one of today’s leading contemporary Mexican ensembles. Their original compositions and arrangements masterfully blend and celebrate the richness of Mexican folk music with the intricate harmonies of jazz and classical music. The Villalobos Brothers deliver an intoxicating brew of brilliance, cadence, and virtuosity that awakens the senses and mesmerizes the listener.

Latin Grammy Nominees Mariachi Flor de Toloache make New York City history as its first and only all­-women mariachi group. Reminiscent of the early days of mariachi, the group started as a trio of harp, violin, and vihuela. Today, Mariachi Flor De Toloache performs as a full mariachi ensemble. The members hail from diverse cultural backgrounds such as Mexico, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Cuba, Australia, Colombia, Germany, Italy, and the United States. This defines their unique flavor and sound. The result of this cultural bouquet is an edgy, versatile, and fresh take on traditional Mexican music. They coalesce as would a band of sisters, with a grace and vibrant beauty that casts a spell over their audiences, not unlike the legendary toloache flower still being used in Mexico as a love potion. While working to preserve centuries-old traditions of mariachi, their mélange of the traditional and the modern pushes the boundaries of the genre and brings mariachi music to new audiences.
