Federico García Lorca, Spain’s National Poet, playwright & collector of Spanish folk & flamenco songs, was much influenced by an early translation of J.M. Synge’s Riders to the Sea. And across the seas, Lorca still reaches deep into our hearts. One of the first poets to tune Lorca’s distinctly Andalusian music into English was Michael Hartnett. Loca por Lorca honours these two great poets with new translations into English by Keith Payne & Irish by Theo Dorgan, together with new musical compositions and arrangements of Spanish folk music from Cormac Juan Breatnach, Jaime Muñoz, Carlos Beceiro & Cormac de Barra supported by motion graphics from Luis Poveda.
