The New York City-based all-female Mariachi Flor De Toloache – featuring trumpeter Julie Acousta, bass guitarist/bandleader Mireya I. Ramos, mandolinist/guitarist Shae Fiol and violinist Luisa Bastidas – made their Greater Nippertown concert debut earlier this month, playing a sold-out show at MASS MoCA in North Adams.
But there was more… Two weeks later they returned to play a free show in Amsterdam’s Riverlink Park as part of the free, summer-long Riverlink Concert Series.
In both cases, the results were the same – a warm summer evening jam-packed with sparkling musicianship and marvelous vocal harmonies.
