SF’s Yerba Buena Gardens Festival 2023 (May 6 – Oct. 28)
The Yerba Buena Gardens Festival opens on Sunday, May 6, 2018 at 1 pm with the first all-female mariachi ensemble, Mariachi Flor de Toloache, as they have blazed a brilliant pioneering path for women in a traditionally male world of Mexican music.
Co-led by violinist and founder Mireya I. Ramos and Shae Fiol on the lute-like vihuela, the New York City-based band earned a 2017 “Best Ranchera Album” Latin Grammy for their album Las Caras Lindas. Flor de Toloache made inroads in indie rock circles supporting The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach on his stylistically expansive side project, The Arcs.
Opening the concert is the enthralling Mexican-born Bay Area-based vocalist, composer, and guitarist Diana Gameros.
