the mariachi problem

'Peg + Cat' episode with Mariachi Flor de Toloache on PBS KIDS

In 2016, we had the opportunity to record music and voice-over for a special episode the Daytime Emmy nominated children's series, Peg + Cat, with PBS Music Supervisor Steven Rebollido, and Music Director J. Walter Hawkes.

Premiered on September 15 on PBS KIDS, "The Mariachi Problem" included members of New York's first (and only) all-women mariachi band Mariachi Flor de Toloache, who play animated versions of themselves in cartoon cameos. The episode featured original counting songs performed by the band as the help Cat serenade his lady love, Rosana, on a road trip to Mexico.

Peg + Cat is a popular children’s television show based on the book “The Chicken Problem”. The show emphasizes math skills for 3 to 5 year olds and seeks to inspire a child’s natural curiosity. "The Mariachi Problem" can be viewed on the PBS KIDS website here:
