WELCOME! BIENVENIDO! ASHÉ is a word of many meanings: blessings, energy, power, confidence -- people, objects, music and ideas – if they’ve got “Ashe” they’ve got energy and power in the purest sense. In Cuba they call it "ache" and in Brazil "axe"; this word is used both in Africa and Tibet, with the same meanings. ASHÉ RECORDS is here to bring you music "con ache"!
ASHE RECORDS CELEBRATES PUERTO RICO!
Yomo Toro was widely considered the greatest virtuoso of the Puerto Rican national instrument, the cuatro. Although he lived in the Bronx for fifty years he never lost his essential Puerto Rican jibaro spirit. Much beloved by Puerto Ricans everywhere he lives on in his spectacular playing and music.
Featuring Eric Figueroa, Jerry Medina, Dalia Silva, Cachete Maldonado, Joe Santiago, Ralph Irizarry, Jorge Gonzales, Bobby Allende and more, this record turns the old Christmas aquinaldos into swinging salsa and jazz.
PARACUMBE PUERTO RICO TAMBIEN TIENE TAMBO
Paracumbe is a group of singers, drummers and dancers who developed fragments of old plena and bomba songs from the elders of the Puerto Rican mountains into full performances and song. Their tribute to both the African and Spanish roots of Puerto Rican music is a great offering to Puerto Rico's profound musical tradition.
Featuring the splendid voice of Nelie Lebron Robles and the musical direction of Emanuel Dufrasnes.
