Flor de Toloache is part of a series titled “Mujeres Poderosas”, which highlights women who are claiming their space, making bold moves to be heard, seen and celebrated.
It was created to show ways that women have taken on the roles traditionally set for men, and performed successfully. She is confident and powerful in her stance because she knows her ability and power.
The piece was partially inspired by the all female mariachi band “Flor de Toloache” They are a mixture of women from different Latino backgrounds with an afro-latina as one of the original founders. “I felt compelled to create a piece of a female mariachi with darker skin tones to show representation for the diverse mix of Latinas in music.
