2016 release. Aventurera was recorded and produced at Razteria's own Truffula Oak Studio. The studio's name comes from being nestled in an old growth of live oak trees hidden in El Sobrante Hills, CA, and symbolizes a goal of sustainability with the imagery of the Truffula tree (the central focus in Dr. Seuss's environmentally themed classic The Lorax). This album is groundbreaking in its richness, showcasing a collaborative synergy with talented independent artists from the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. Artists featured on Aventurera include: Sang Matiz, Rahman Jamaal, Carolyn Smith, Chatterbox, Seneca, as well as Waddell Bell and Lou Neuburger (bass and drums, Fyah Squad Band), Raliegh Neal (keys, Michael Franti and Spearhead), Jayme Arredondo (drums, Don Carlos), Joe Newton (drums), Anthony Ant (trumpet), Dave Eagle (percussion), and Luke Thomas (guitar). Once the basic tracks were completed, James Ward of Live Oak Studio (Girl on Fire's Alicia Keys, Will Smith, Beyonce/ Destiny's Child), with whom Razteria has been working for the past nine years, helped her take the mixes to the final level, and Justin Weiss of Trakworx (Zion I, The Coup, Papa Roach, Chuchito Valdes and Eddy Navia) mastered the album. Two of the songs (‘Change’ and ‘Little Sister’) were mixed at Kinyama Sounds (Rootwords), a Suisse based label.
