Raised in Puerto Rico, Mireya Ramos grew up watching her father perform in the Mexican restaurant he owned. When he wasn’t cooking, he’d travel from table to table to entertain guests with mariachi music. Ramos knew almost immediately that mariachi would be one of her first loves. Years later, in 2008, she went on to become the founder and director of Flor de Toloache, an eclectic all-female mariachi band based in New York City. Over the last few years the group has gained popularity by playing in the subway and at smaller venues, but with the recent release of their first album, they’re poised to make an even bigger mark on the city’s entertainment scene.
