About the Event
Los Lorcas: 5:30 pm-6:45 pm
In the spirit of Federico Garcia Lorca—gifted musician, legendary poet/playwright and ebullient performer- Los Lorcas blurs boundaries between spoken word and song, weaving poetry with Andalusian ballads, blues, rock, folk, reggae, hip hop, Americana and jazz in pursuit of the cante jondo (deep song) Lorca so ardently championed.
“Los Lorcas in unity is a marvel that would silence any creative individual to awe, inspiring the quietest observer to reach for each word as if they were Federico Lorca himself, meditating on song and poetry mid-stage, arms outstretched.” —Bianca Viñas, PoemCity 2018
