From July 16th in the digital stores “PERMALOSO” the new single by Giancarlo ft. Guè Pequeno ft. Toni Veltri. A song that finds the right combination of Guè’s cutting rhymes and Toni’s elegant accent, emphasizing three different moods, which end up synergistically converging in one direction. “PERMALOSO” is structurally intertwined in four piano lines, with guitars also played by Giancarlo and a drums line trap, softened by acoustic melodies.
The text is apparently divided into three parts, written in reality by three souls who vibrate in unison and, as Giancarlo recalls, “underlines the need to live with others while preserving one’s uniqueness, one’s strengths and even defects, even a Touchy character. From this perspective, it becomes essential to distance ourselves from those who prevent the full expression of ourselves. The song is accompanied by a video clip made by Alberto Alessi. This extraordinary single has been created by three acclaimed great Italian artists. To understand more how they realize this beautiful song, we will let you know more about them.

With his long-time friend Marracash, he publishes the long-awaited collaborative project Santeria, written and recorded between Milan, Tenerife (Canary Islands) and Trançoso (Brazil) and very influenced by the atmospheres absorbed in these places: it will go double platinum and will collect an endless sequence of certifications for individuals.
