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 THE HOLIDAY SEASON!
Master cuatro player Yomo Toro knows that you don’t have to be in Puerto Rico to enjoy a traditional Christmas. Aluminun foil may replace banana leaves for the pasteles, buildings and streets may replace the mountains and countryside, but nothing replaces a tipico parranda of aguinaldos, bombas and plenas. The ringing sound of Yomo Toro's cuatro brings in the joyfulness of the Puerto Rican Christmas.
Featuring Eric Figueroa, Jerry Medina, Dalia Silva, Cachete Maldonado and many more, this record turns the old Christmas aquinaldos into swinging salsa and jazz.
ODETTA BEAUTIFUL STAR
Ashe Records is pleased to this classic Christmas album by one of America's greatest voices, the majestic Odetta, who Martin Luther King called 'The Queen of American Folk Music'. On this beautiful album Odetta presents a deeply felt collection of traditional and original songs. This is both a fine holiday album and an essential listen for Odetta fans no matter what the season.
"These songs celebrate Christmas as a time of birth, of hope, of survival. They are songs of celebration, of reaffirmation and of how my forebears managed to get through, under, over and around oppression." -- Odetta
