Enjoy a spectacular evening taking in the talent of 3 all-women mariachi groups who will pay tribute to Linda Ronstadt and celebrate Linda’s place in the history of mariachi women. Our guests will include Mariachi Mariposas who will travel from the Rio Grande Valley in Texas to share their passion for mariachi music and back by popular demand the passionate Mariachi Flor de Toloache from New York City! Starting the evening off will be the newest all-female group in the Los Angeles mariachi, Las Angelitas!
The elegant and charming ladies of MARIACHI MARIPOSAS will travel all the way from South TEXAS to captivate you with their extraordinary mariachi sounds and voices. Experience a revolution not with fire and brimstone but with a phenomenal mariachi performance that will alter your view of South Texas. Mariachi Mariposas will offer a performance marinated in artistic grace and passion and expressed through the heart of a woman. This group is comprised of the top female musicians from across the Rio Grande Valley in South Texas.
MARIACHI FLOR DE TOLOACHE is the first and only established all female mariachi band in NEW YORK. Each member’s cultural background adds even more diversity to their already unique sound and appearance. They are an all women band spanning the globe from Puerto Rico, to Mexico, Singapore, Germany, Cuba, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, and the United States. They performed for 15 minutes in last year’s concert. This year, they are back by popular demand and you get to hear an entire performance!

They are composed of some of L.A.’s most talented mariachi musicians and have already performed as the accompanying mariachi for a concert by well-known and celebrated Mexican singer, Yolanda del Rio.
