In the Yoruba language, the polysemic word “ashé” means “power”, “gift”, “luck” and “virtue”. Ashé is also the name chosen by a quartet of Cuban musicians living in Barcelona with outstandingly brilliant curriculums. That’s why they play the best son, guaracha, rumba, cha-cha-cha, mambo and bolero that you’re likely to hear around these parts, as well as other Caribbean genres. And if that were not enough, at the Mas i Mas Festival they present “Antaño con Swing”, a session to bring back the music that could be heard in Cuba from the 1920s to the 1950s. A tasty Caribbean cocktail in the Plaça Reial.
