"No Veo Nada" was written using a piece of Zezé Fassmor's poetry, and features drums by Jayme Arredondo of classic Don Carlos reggae band, guitar by Tomas Salcedo of Fantastic Negrito and Kora (a West African harp) by Yacouba Diarra.
Razteria explains that, “Zezé became blind at 25 as a rare consequence of an eye injury. The Peruvian-Argentinian poet is now 34, and in his poem he describes how he now perceives the world, as one eye is dead and the other shines perpetual in bright white, as it still has some neural activity. It is like having one eye in the new moon and one eye as a sun.”
Although this song is beachy and laid back, it is also captivatingly depth-filled. The lyrics intend to express that Razteria is the sweet voice helping Zezé to “see the horizon.” You’ll find that her vocals have such an enchanting quality. The two artists met in Buenos Aires in 2017, and continued to travel together. Meeting Zezé and becoming good friends with him was very impactful for Razteria, and has given her a chance to view life from a new perspective. "No Veo Nada" is a beautiful collaboration.
Razteria has launched a GoFundMe campaign to raise funds for buying equipment needed for a home studio so Zezé can start a podcast to further his artistic productions and the promotional efforts he makes for other independent artists and musicians.
