Las Casas de Carton, No Basta Rezar, Perdoneme Tio Juan, Que Vivan los Estudiantes, are among the greatest hits of the Group. If you Google Los Guaraguao you can find some of their Lyrics as well as some videos of one of the most influential group of Latin America who began their career 36 years ago and are still committed to their mission for justice.
