LATIN ROOTS, REGGAE RIDDIMS, ACTIVIST INTENT & STRONG FEMALE VOCALS
Razteria can be described as a fusion of Marissa Monte, early No Doubt, and Steel Pulse. Her music unites Reggae, passionate Latin grooves, Rock, powerful messages and musical genius. Described as 'musically adventurous' and 'a one of a kind breaking of all rules' (1), her songwriting reflects her passion and strong commitment to social justice.
Razteria is currently in full production mode – her fifth album will be released in 2015. Tours are being scheduled in South America (February 2015), Europe (April 2015), and the United States (Summer 2015).
Razteria's multicultural background (US-born, Bolivian-Dutch heritage) has had a profound influence on her musical path. She has planted musical seeds in Argentina, Bolivia, Canada, USA and Europe (France, Switzerland), opening for international acts such as: Grammy award winning reggae artist Michael Rose, popular UK/JA lover's rock Lloyd Brown, The Garifuna Collective from Belize and US national touring artists Mystic Roots, Caribbean All-Stars and Taj Weekes & Adowa. Other noteworthy performances include World Fest Los Angeles, World One Festival, North West World Reggae Festival and the Montreal Jazz festival to name a few. Her music has been licensed by MTV's True Life series and various independent films.
In March of 2013, for International Women’s Month, Razteria joined the stage with Irae Divine, Queen Makedah and Sol Atash for the Empress Meditations Women for Peace Tour, an exciting and unique female showcase that delivers reggae and world music influences from all over the globe in 6 different languages. The tour, backed by the Fyah Squad Band, visited many cities on the West coast while raising contributions for A Safe Place, an Oakland based charity supporting victims of domestic violence. Razteria & Empress Meditations continue to perform in support of community-based organizations such as Bread & Roses.
