Indestructible by Flor de Toloache Album Redesign
Indestructible is an album released by Flor de Toloache, an all women Mariachi band from New York, with members of many cultural backgrounds.
I approached this redesign using iconography of the Toloache flower, themes revolving around love potions, and the colorful story being told through the bilingual lyrics of the album.

Through my research, I enjoyed being able to uncover with the traditions of Mariachi music and its origins.
I discovered this group in the NPR podcast Code Switch episode titled Songs Giving Us (Much Needed) Life. This is where I heard the song "Te Lo Dije" and gave the rest of the album a listen. Learning more about the group, which was founded in 2008, I became inspired by the way the group preserves the tradition of Mariachi music while also breaking traditions through their unique sounds.
