ABOUT THE ARTISTS
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.
Sang Matiz has been performing for 6 years, fusing World and Afro-Brazilian/Peruvian beats with contemporary rhythms such as Pop, Jazz, and Funk. Thanks to a grant awarded by The California Arts Council Endowment for the Arts and The San Francisco Arts Commission for Cultural Equity, they released the album, “Ship It!” Most recently in August 2015, they were chosen and honored to open for the legendary Cuban band Buena Vista Social Club Orchestra for their “Adios Tour.” Throughout the years, they’ve also had the great opportunity to collaborate with various renowned Bay Area musicians such as: Jackeline Rago (Master Percussionist), Miguelito Martinez (Flutist/Composer), Silvestre Martinez (Composer/Percussionist), and Grammy Award-winner Braulio Barrera (Pacific Mambo Orchestra), among many others. In addition, they’ve had the pleasure of sharing the stage with national and international acts such as Jorge Santana (Malo) and Pete Escovedo.
