MARIACHI FEMININO: 2017 Latin Grammy Winner Mariachi Flor de Toloache comes to Oshman JCC in Palo Alto.

Traditionally, mariachi as a musical form comes from a specific place. It is played on specific instruments, and its practitioners often limit performances to specific spaces within a specific region. New York-based Mariachi Flor de Toloache maintain a rotating ensemble of all women performers—all from highly diverse backgrounds—and infuse their western Mexican arrangements with elements of rock, jazz and hip-hop. They are just as comfortable performing at a local cultural center as they are playing with Black Keys frontman Dan Auerbach at the Bowery Ballroom. As such, they are connecting with audiences in a manner that straightforward mariachi acts couldn’t hope to match.
