Different Meaning in Cuba?Edit

I'm pretty sure that in Cuban music "axé" or "aché" refers to a concept similar to "soul" in English when referring to music (as in "playing with soul") and comes from the Yoruban "ashé" which kind of means "let it be done" or "so it is" (although I don't speak Yoruban, so I can't say that for sure.) I hesitate to make any changes because I'm not Cuban, so I'm not sure if it's really normally used that way, or if it's more normal for it to be used as an explicit reference to West Africa or Santería.

I reviewed the article and think the content is pretty good and I'm glad to see it is not an orphan. I think it needs more verifiable sources, and the quality of the existing ones can be improved by including author, year, etc. -Reagle (talk) 16:20, 4 November 2016 (UTC)

Peer ReviewEdit

The content appears quite concise and articulate, great job on the material. I think you just need to revise all of the sources highlighted red as they direct users to an "edit source" page and not an actual internal or external link page. I also very minutely edited 3 things - switched 2 words to their plural forms, changed "two years before" to "two years back" to fix grammar of sentence. They were not easily noticeable so nothing outstanding at all. Great job! Anushkabg (talk) 17:48, 13 November 2016 (UTC)
