Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with Flor de Toloache—Murfin Home Confinement Music Festival 2020

Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with Flor de Toloache.

Nothing could be more gay and cheerful than celebrating Cinco de Mayo with mariachi flair especially when performed by Flor de Toloache who defy stereotypical macho expectations
A every hearty partier will tell you Cinco de Mayo in the U.S. it has become kind of second St. Patrick’s Day decked out in sombreros and serapes instead of emerald green, toasted to with Coronas with lime and shots of tequila instead of Guinness and Jamison’s, and laid out with two-for-one taco deals instead of corn beef and cabbage plates.  It is celebrated without apparent irony even by those who cheer Trump and who send semi-literate screeds to the newspapers railing against those damned lazy, criminal immigrants.

Alas for both those revel in a rare moment of cultural appreciation for their people and country and clueless appropriators of Pancho Villa stereotypes the annual fiesta has been reined in by an entirely different Corona.  Maybe some of us can scour the house for some tequila or a bottle or two of good Mexican beer rustle up some hamburger tacos made with an envelope of seasoning and some stale corn taco shells.  The music will help.

Flor de Toloache.
New York based Flor de Toloache rose from playing in the subway for tips to entertaining before packed arenas and adoring fans, TV appearances in both the United States and Mexico and a Latin Grammy nomination.
