One listen to Mireya Ramos’ slaying vocals on “Regresa Yá,” and you’ll never think of mariachi as tame tableside entertainment again.
The Rolling Stone (US Edition)

“These mariachis have moxie. They don't just sing; they could blast through mountains with their wails and gritos (shouts), and melt glaciers with the warmth of their gorgeous harmonies (figuratively speaking, of course). And they don't just play mariachi. Flor de Toloache also weaves an arsenal of styles into its new release, Las Caras Lindas (The Pretty Faces): jazz, classical, salsa, cumbia, folk, rock, country and hip-hop. ”
