Guatemala is a wedding lovesong written for a couple that were close friends of the Tokyo singer-songwriter, Kev Gray of Akibakei fame.
The song tracks their relationship from Guatemala back to Shibuya in Tokyo where they were finally reunited after the bride's NGO work in Guatemala ended after three years.
The song borrows from the lounge music that made a comeback during that time, and was the first song Kev Gray recorded.
