When Roberta composed California, she had a vision of an imaginary island full of insects: some parts of it being gray, others being multicolored, moving in concentric circles at a different pace as if it were a kaleidoscope. Margarita listened to the instrumental while
biking in Amsterdam and the pedaling helped her compose the vocals, each pedal movement was a syllable: ca-li-for-nia. She recorded the vocals and Roberta finished up the song in her studio in Buenos Aires. Earthy and cosmic at the same time, California was born.

This is the first single by the duo, roberta i margarita, who are from Argentina and Bulgaria, respectively. They met in the Netherlands and soon began what was to become a transcontinental collaboration.
