New Single: Historia de un Amor

Razteria’s reggae cover of “Historia de un Amor” (Spanish for “the story of a love”) was produced in collaboration with NJ-based UK-Jamaican musician Derek Brown and features Waddell Bell on bass, Dave Shul on guitar, Glenn Holdaway on trumpet, Liam Robertson on saxophone, and Joan Reggae Drummer. This classic love song, originally written by Panamanian songwriter Carlos Eleta Almarán in 1955, has been covered by hundreds of artists worldwide in various languages. Razteria’s rendition is accompanied by a music video at the historic Hotel Mac in Point Richmond, featuring a performance by the innkeeper Desiree Heveroh, shot by Alex Zajicek and was edited and directed by Jeremy Snowden.

Listen here


Ya no estás más a mi lado, corazón (You are no longer by my side, my dear)

En el alma solo tengo soledad (In my soul I only have loneliness)

Y si ya no puedo verte (And  if I can no longer see you)

¿Por qué Dios me hizo quererte (Why did God make me love you?)

Para hacerme sufrir más? (To just make me suffer?)

Siempre fuiste la razón de mi existir (You were always the reason for my existence)

Adorarte para mí fue religión (To adore you was my religion)

Y en tus besos yo encontraba (and in your kisses I found)

El calor que me brindaba (The heat that gave me)

El amor y la pasión (Love and passion)

Es la historia de un amor (This is a love story)

Como no hay otro igual (That has no comparison)

Que me hizo comprender (That made me understand)

Todo el bien, todo el mal (All that is good, and all that is bad)

Que le dio luz a mi vida (That gave light to my life)

Apagándola después (And then took that light away)

Ay, qué vida tan oscura (What a dark life)

Sin tu amor no viviré (Without your love, I cannot live)
