WELCOME! BIENVENIDO! ASHÉ is a word of many meanings: blessings, energy, power, confidence -- people, objects, music and ideas – if they’ve got “Ashé” they’ve got energy and power in the purest sense. In Cuba they call it "aché" 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 aché"!

CELEBRATE THE HOLIDAY SEASON WITH MUSIC!
The majestic sound of Odetta's voice transports us through these universal Christmas Spirituals. As Odetta said, "These are the songs that helped us get over, under and through." Although Beautiful Star is wonderful all year 'round, it is especially during the Christmas season that these songs really come to life. It is our sincere wish that these songs and Odetta's voice will transport us, bringing peace and joy to all who hear it.
You don't have to be in Puerto Rico to have a genuine Puerto Rican Christmas! The sonorous sound of Yomo Toro’s cuatro is the essence of Puerto Rico. One of the original Fania All-Stars, on this album he takes the traditional Christmas aquinaldos and plenas and turns them into swinging salsa and soulful solos. This album is definitely for dancing!
