Lyrics
I want to sit in the Sun and write
A song for you
I know you may not like it
But it’s for you
You’re my Muse x2
I’ll write – Anything I choose
I want to sit in the Song I write
Immerse myself in you
You’re always out of my reach
We’ll never be true
I have nothing to loose
I’ll imagine anything I choose
You can’t refuse my Muse

CHORUS
You inspire me – Eh
I’ll immortalize – my words in rhyme
You inspire me – Eh
I’ll immortalize this song in Time

Here I must admit
I’m totally obsessed
There’s nothing else to do but
Give my blood to transfuse
All of me to you my Muse
Fuse all of me to you
My Muse

CHORUS
You devour me – Eh
But I’ll immortalize my soul in rhyme
You inspire me – Eh
I’ll devote my Life
Immortalize Eyz
You inspire me – Eh
I’ll immortalize this song in rhyme
You inspire me – Eh
I’ll immortalize my words in Time
INTERLUDE
CHORUS
You devour me – Eh
But I’ll immortalize
My soul in Time
You inspire me – Eh
I’ll devote my Life
OUTRO
This song I write
Immortalized
My soul in Time
As you Devour me
This is what’s left behind
This is my Life
This song I write
I’m immortalized – Immortal-Eyzd

ABOUT CRUZANDO CORAZONES:

After nearly a year-long production process, CRUZANDO CORAZONES comes to life, a six-track EP packed with powerful symbolism and colorful expressions of important issues.

Tiempos de Tinieblas is a Hip-hop song by young Bolivian rapper EDY who RAZTERIA met while volunteering at EnseñArte in Cochabamba. Co-produced by Jayme Arredondo it also features the charango playing of Bolivian star, Luciel Izumi. It’s a reminder of the end of Bolivia’s brutal oppressive history and a call to take control of one’s destiny in a free society. Recorded at LA Estudio and Truffula Oak studio.

Agua pa Camello is a Colombian AfroBeat song by SURATIVA PARLANTE from Bogota, Colombia. This 9-piece band combines indigenous roots music & AfroBeat. Reminiscent of Fela Kuti, the upbeat song takes on the serious issue of water scarcity and the vital necessity to share. It was recorded live at Arbol Naranja in Bogota.

Suerte features KALIMBA, a Latin Reggae band from Bella Vista, in the province of  Buenos Aires, Argentina. Quite simply, a love song infused with a feeling of gratitude for being alive. The lyric is by Argentinian lyricist Ariel Leira originally interpreted by Mercedes Sosa on the song Por Un Solo Gesto de Amor. Recorded at La Fragua Estudio.

Solo en la Carne features LUCAS ROCHAIX, a young jazz guitarist composer from Olivos, in the province of Buenos Aires, Andres Dellacasa on drums and Raian Valença João on bass. This song is the Spanish version of RAZTERIA’s award-winning song Once Again (John Lennon Songwriting Contest, Grand Prize, World Music 2016). It is a humble wish to see, feel and hear the words of loved ones who are far away. Recorded at Chafirete studio.

Mosquito features female producer and multi-instrumentalist EMJE ROSE together with percussionist Oscar Reyes from Barranquilla, Colombia. Showcasing her vibrantly exotic feel of the Colombian Caribbean this is a fun song that takes on the message of Dengue fever prevention. Recorded and mixed at Afro Estudios.

Todas las Voces interpreted by Patagonian folklore band CELESTE Y LAS MIL JARILLAS is a version of “Canción con Todos” by Julio Cesar Isella and Armando Tejada Gomez made most famous by Mercedes Sosa. A Latin American anthem, it is a message of solidarity and appreciation for each countries’ unique beauty. Recorded and mixed at Chafirete studio.

CRUZANDO CORAZONES VOL 1 was mastered by TrakWorx. Unless otherwise noted, all tracks produced & mixed by RAZTERIA. Artwork by Mexican artist Alfredo Varela.

 

AVENTURERA Official Music Video Released

Shot and chopped by Japanese director Hitoshi Inoue, the official music video AVENTURERA is the title track from RAZTERIA’s most recent album (AVENTURERA, Asteria Records 2016). Beautifully staged in dozens of locations throughout California, it looks like it was shot on real film. The track is a collaboration with Peruvian artist YURIZA JARED and her band SANG MATIZ, an Afro Latin Funk band based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Look out for their new album coming summer 2017.

 

WHAT’S NEXT?

Following September 1st, 2017, when CRUZANDO CORAZONES VOL 1 drops together with videos of the production process, RAZTERIA plans to launch 2 singles, one in English and one in Spanish, to give a taste of what’s next for the 2 albums in the works for 2017-2018.

 

LIVE CONCERTS

RAZTERIA will be playing at Musikfest with Reggaeton band Mr. O Band, on August 7-8, 2017 in Bethlehem, PA. For more tour dates visit: RAZTERIA.com/events.

J’ai une formation en santé publique et sciences de l’environnement et ca a directement inspiré la composition des chansons comme “Mosquito” et “Vinchuca” – prévention de maladies Dengue et Chagas. Aussi je cherche à diffuser des problématiques sociaux, par exemple la lutte des immigrantes sans documents dans ma chanson “Illegal” … https://soundcloud.com/razteria/4-llegal
En plus, la j’ai commencer un studio d’enregistrement avec le but d’offrir des services économiques et en échanges d;autre services. J’aimerais donner des cours d’ingénieur de son et de production, surtout aux femmes pour encourager plus de participation… un peu selon le modèle de Women’s Audio Mission, ici a San Francisco, bien sûr sur une échelle plus petite!

La je présente mes influences musicaux.. Enfait mes parents se sont rencontrés à travers la musique folklorique d’Amérique Latine! La basse m’a beaucoup attirée comme instrument – et alors le Reggae m’a beaucoup influencé – le faite que la basse est une intrument principale dans ce style de musique et aussi les messages sociaux qui prédominent le texte des chansons roots- reggae…
