Taylor Watson, a New York City teacher and performer, and Mirtha Rico, met during the 2014-2015 Educators Workshop at Carnegie Hall. Their mutual interest for the Cuban traditions and music compelled them to create their duo “Suena Ashé.”  Taylor primarily plays guitar and the tres, the signature stringed instrument of Cuba. Mirtha sings and plays the piano. Below you can listen to a sample of their music.
