Las Caras Lindas is the sophomore release by New York City’s all-female mariachi group Flor De Toloache. For Las Caras Lindas, the quartet keeps crafting songs where traditional mariachi music instrumentation meets contemporary pop vocal styles sung in both Spanish and English. Accomplished musicians with great singing abilities playing old musical traditions from the least expected place.

RIYL: Mariachi El Bronx, Mariachi America De Jesus Rodriguez De Hijar, Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlán, Mariachi Sol De México and Mariachi Buenaventura.

Recommended Tracks: 2, 3, 4, 7, 8, 9, 11

1. (3:06) Long Gone Girl – Traditional mariachi sounds, country vocals, in English.
2. (3:37) *Dulces Recuerdos – Bilingual composition. Part cumbia, part son Jaliscience. Tex-Mex pop.
3. (3:37) **Ruiseñor – Classic mariachi instrumentation. It has a 1960s mariachi recordings vibe. Me gusta.
4. (4:02) **Éste Vacío – Slow piece. Vintage ranchera style.
5. (4:15) Las Caras Lindas (Feat. Velcro & Pedrito Martinez) – Mariachi urbano a la Nueva York style.
6. (4:12) Regresa Ya – Mariachi ballad. Great instrumentation.
7. (3:47) *No Hay Vuelta Atrás – Slow mariachi pop. En Ingles and Spanish.
8. (3:54) *Puro Teatro – Mariachi version of the La Lupe’s classic recording. Sad and lonely.
9. (5:00) **Juan Ga: Se Me Olvidó Otra Vez / Costumbres / Me Gustas Mucho – A medley of classic songs by the great Mexican singer-songwriter Juan Gabriel. Inspirado.
10. (1:15) Beso Asesino – A cappella piece.
11. (6:55) *Huapango Medley: Malaguena Salerosa / El Pastor / La Cigarra – Traditional mariachi composition. Ode to the classics.
