San Francisco based artist Razteria (aka Renee Asteria) can be described as a fusion of Bomba Estero, early No Doubt, Steel Pulse and Marissa Monte. Razteria unites simple yet intricate songs w/powerful messages through ethereal harmonies, passionate grooves & fat bass. “AVENTURERA” is the title track of Razteria’s new album coming Spring 2016.
Over the past ten years, Razteria, performing under both Razteria and Renee Asteria, has planted musical seeds throughout the Americas (Argentina, Bolivia, Canada, and USA) and Europe (France, Switzerland). In late 2015 Razteria completed her fifth album Aventurera, which will be available as of March 18, 2016 on digital platforms worldwide and in select stores.
Razteria has opened for and performed with Grammy award winning Reggae artist Michael Rose, popular UK/JA lover’s rock Lloyd Brown, The Garifuna Collective from Belize and others. Noteworthy performances include Reggae on the River, World One Festival, World Fest Los Angeles, Northwest World Reggae Festival and the Montreal Jazz festival, to name a few. Her music has been licensed by MTV’s True Life series as well as a few independent films.
Razteria has also begun building a recording studio as an accessible and affordable space for aspiring artists.
Empress Unification Collective
Born and raised in Iran to an Armenian mother and Jewish father, Amanda aka Sol Atash has been referred to as “the walking United Nations” since a young age. Sol meaning sun in Spanish and Atash translating to Fire in Farsi (the language of Iran), Sol Atash embodies Sun Fire -a Farsi speaking fiery Sagittarius. Sol was encouraged to sing in 2011 by an artist with whom she was working. She sings Reggae music in Farsi, very rare indeed.
