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"!

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. 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.
The sound of the HangPan cleans the air and restores peace to the soul Sammy lends his considerable rhythmical talents and musical sensibilities to the floating celestial sounds of the HangPan.
