Written by Toco in collaboration with his friend Leonardo Milan and Stefano “S-Tone Inc.” Tirone – here also in the role of the producer – and recorded at Schema Records’ Blue Spirit studios, “Guajiru” is a track in the classic samba-rock style, inspired by Orlandivo’s swing and Jorge Ben’s sensuality.
