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"!

MEMORY OF WATER SAMMY FIGUEROA plays the HangPan
CD album to be released on Friday February 24th! Now available on iTunes and Amazon!
When we think of percussionist Sammy Figueroa most of us think of spectacular conga solos and exciting Latin jazz. But there's another side to Sammy, the contemplative side, the Sammy that meditates and has a consuming interest in science, metaphysics and alternative medicine. This side of Sammy Figueroa plays the celestial and relaxing sounds of the Hangpan.
The HangPan is a revolutionary hybrid instrument and a stellar addition to the world of melodic percussion. Basically a sophisticated steel drum to be played by hand and fingers, this extraordinary instrument offers a stunning blend of sounds and melodic possibilities.
