Mireya Ramos takes us on a journey through the Latin-tinged Americana landscape of the greater US, featuring classic Jazz as well as Mexican traditionals, in both Spanish and English.
Riding out the global pandemic by chance in lovely New Plymouth NZ, Mireya I. Ramos is a Latin Grammy-winning and Grammy-nominated violinist and vocalist of Dominican and Mexican descent, raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico, born in California and usually residing in NYC.
Before crafting a career as a vocalist, violinist, guitarron player, composer, guitarist, arranger, producer and founder of Flor de Toloache – NY’s first and only all women mariachi – Mireya Ramos started touring the world as a member of the pro eminent San Juan's Children Choir.
Born in California to a proud Dominican Music-loving mother and a big voice, Mariachi-fronting Mexican father, Mireya was raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico. At the age of 17, she followed her dreams to New York City where she paid her dues playing Mariachi, salsa, merengue, jazz, R&B and hip-hop. A classically trained violinist by Suzuki method, Mireya's passion is strongest for folk as well as other alternative genres.
With her improvisation skills, colourful violin and vocal textures, Mireya has become one of the top requested Latin artists in New York City. There her Latin-Jazz band Movemiento was the first Latin group to be part of the Music Under New York program and her Mariachi group Flor De Toloache was the first all-female Mariachi ensemble in NYC.
