RENAY – New 2018 project produced by Razteria.
San Francisco, CA, based artist Razteria (aka Renée Asteria) can be described as a fusion of No Doubt and Bomba Estéreo. Her multicultural roots (Bolivia/Netherlands) are reflected in her music, as she crosses musical genres with powerful messages in multiple languages. Over the past decade, Razteria has planted musical seeds throughout the Americas and Europe.
On July 20th, 2018, Razteria will be releasing “Reach”, a love song under new project named Renay following her music production training at Cre-8 Music Academy in Los Angeles.
Razteria’s latest release, “2 Immortal Eyz” (To Immortalize), is an alternative/experimental single (street date, 02/20/2018) in which she expands even further her boundaries, fusing unconventional acoustic instruments, such as the African harp (Kora) and Bolivian bass pan flutes – (Toyos) with electronic elements. In 2017, Razteria completed an 8-month long international production tour bringing talent from Argentina, Bolivia, Colombia, USA, France and Switzerland and released a multi-artist Latin EP called “Cruzando Corazones” (translation “Where Hearts Collide”, street date 09/01/2017).
The year 2016 was filled with blessings, notably, with the release of Razteria’s fifth album Aventurera (March 18, 2016) which received great reviews nationally and internationally. It charted on CMJ New World Music Top 40 and the song Once Again, which Razteria wrote together with rapper Rahman Jamaal, won Grand Prize (World Category) in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest 2016.
Noteworthy performances include MusikFest, Reggae on the River, Montreal Jazz festival, World One Festival, World Fest Los Angeles, Northwest World Reggae Festival, to name a few.
