Razteria (aka Rene Asteria) can perfectly be described as a fusion between the beginning of No Doubt, Steel Pulse, Los Aterciopelados and Marisa Monte. Aventurera is her fifth original album, released on her own Asteria Records. A disc that portrays the adventures of each of us, looking beyond the known, touching the unknown and challenging ourselves. This is the concept behind this collection of 12 tracks. Very present, as usual, it is the multicultural component. Incidentally, Razteria was born in the US, daughter of Bolivian and Dutch having grown up in France. For that alone, this already justifies this multicultural approach that turns out to be reflected when quanta in English, Spanish, French and Portuguese (this record our language is not used). An adventurous journey of music without imposing limits ranging from Latin rhythms to reggae with strong messages. In Aventurera , Razteria uses the talents of a number of musicians from the San Francisco scene which includesSang Matiz, Rahman Jamaal, Carolyn Smith, Chatterbox, Seneca, Waddell Bell and Lou Neuburger, (bass and drums, Fyah Squad Band), Raliegh Neal (keyboards, Michael Franti and Spearhead), Jaime Arredondo (drums, Don Carlos ), Joe Newton (drums), Anthony Ant (trumpet), Dave Eagle (percussion) and Luke Thomas (guitars).
