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"!

Celebrate the great musical tradition of Puerto Rico
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.
QUE CARAMBA ES LA VIDA with Las Pioneras de Mexico and Maria Del Carmen
This album is a companion to the documentary film 'Que Caramba Es La Vida' which follows the lives of women that play mariachi in Mexico City. Las Pioneras de Mexico are a group of venerable women musicians who have been playing mariachi and ranchera since the 1950's. Maria del Carmen has spent her life living on the edge of the iconic Plaza Garibaldi and has been singing in the plaza since childhood, one of the few woman to perform in the very macho environment of mariachi in Mexico City.
