Valdés resumed her recording career in 1982 with the recording of Aché for Siboney, an imprint of EGREM. The album featured again Isupo Irawo and Los Amigos (an ensemble directed by pianist Frank Emilio Flynn and featuring Guillermo Barreto). Several LPs followed: Aché II (1988), Aché III (1989), Aché IV (1990) and Aché V (1993), the latter two in collaboration with Yoruba Andabo. In 1988, she toured Spain and Canada

It was a return to recording after a long absence from the studio, and the first of four albums of Yoruba-roots influenced music.

Beer + Album Cover Art Pairing 1. Marvin Gaye’s Live at The London Palladium and Green Flash’s Tangerine Soul Style IPA. I’m sure it goes without saying but just a reminder: Marvin Gaye is legendary. His live performances at the London Palladium in 1976 were recorded and released as an album in 1977 and it is amazing. Distant Lover, Let’s Get It On and Got to Give It Up are just a few of the classics you will find on this album but the true star of this record might just be its cover. The red, orange and yellowish tones depict Gaye accurately, as a fiery and passionate performer. I chose Aché solely based on the cover art. Valdes stands confidently on the cover donning a black dress and her hair delicately wrapped. She looks iconic and fierce on the cover. The same fierceness appears on Stone Brewing’s Pataskala Red IPA.

Valdés resumed her recording career in 1982 with the recording of Aché for Siboney, an imprint of EGREM. The album featured Grupo Isupo Irawo (a new incarnation of the Coro Yoruba y Tambores Batá) and Los Amigos (an ensemble directed by pianist Frank Emilio Flynn and featuring Guillermo Barreto). Several LPs followed: Aché II (1988), Aché III (1989) and Aché IV (1995), the latter in collaboration with Yoruba Andabo. In 1988, she toured Spain and Canada with Sergio.

A Yemaya (Remasterizado).

It was a return to recording after a long absence from the studio, and the first of four albums of Yoruba-roots influenced music. The album won an EGREM prize. Aché is the Cuban spelling of Ase the Orisha term for "life power", and Valdés herself was sometimes known by the nickname "Little Aché".
