Valdés was born in the Cayo Hueso neighborhood in Havana on 14th October 1928. When she was twelve years old, and without her parents´consent, she applied to compete in "The Supreme Court of Art" (a programme that launched the careers of many musicians); she sang two pieces: "Babalú", a theme popularised by Miguelito Valdés, and "La negra Mercé" by Ernesto Lecuona. She was granted an award, the first of many.

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".
