Poesie d'Amore di F. Garcia Lorca
Federico Garcia Lorca / Arnoldo Foa Poesie d'Amore di... EP
My Spanish is pretty much what you would expect from someone who learned most of the language off of Taco Bell's old wall menu. So it should come as know surprise that I have no idea what the hell is going on with this record other than it sounds really beautiful. I've read Lorca in translation - in fact, most of what has been published - however, none of it compares to the original language. I'm not sure whether this constitutes a great, good, or merely passable recording of Lorca, but it sounds good to me. The understated guitar works really well with the words. It has the same kind of duende (or raw fire in the belly) that Lorca writes about in the most important of his essays, On Duende (see Poetics of the New American Poetry). No need to prattle on any longer. Give these a listen.
