The most important activity in Federico Garcìa Lorca’s life, apart from the literary activity, was the musical one. Both are tightly bonded, so that we can notice how his poetry, lyric or dramatic, is full of musical inspiration, not only in the themes and form of expression, but also in the structure, in the style and in the emotion that arouses.

As a child he studied music and it seems that this, for a while, was his principal and precocious vocation. During adolescence music and literature disputed for supremacy, and the latter won.

His musical vocation remained ever more circumscribed to the field of folk music.

Raised in Granada, as a child he had the opportunity to live in direct contact with the countryside and the peasants’ world, and to know their songs and folk dances.

What he learned during childhood represents the most intimate and genuine depth of his knowledge of spanish folk music.

He profoundly studied the most important songbooks, and particularly Felipe Pedrell’s and Barbieri’s ones , which allowed him to know not only the folk music preserved in the tradition of other areas of Spain, but also the ancient music transcibed from the manuscipts, from the medieval books and from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries ( therefore far in time and space).

For the choice of songbooks he only had at his disposal the melodic musical note, with no accompaniment whatsoever, of melodies never heard before and at which he wasn’t used.

Living in Andalusia, he actually had not many occasions of listening to Castiglia’s peasants singing or those from the north of Spain so, in order to know their music, he had to avail himself of the knowledge of amateurs and folk experts from those areas.

But his great musical and popular instinct helped him to rapidly perceive the characteristics of each one of them.

He accompanied the songs using his own arrangements which, in spite of their semplicity, they were of a great effectivess, because they were able to unveil the harmony and the rhythm implicit in every song.

All this proves that his work in the musical folk field was not the systemathic and methodical opera of a specialist, but that one of an artist who, in the popular, searched for the pleasure of discover and performance of a different art, full of originality, perfection and beauty.
