Eighty years before terms like “1 percenter” and “the Occupy movement” entered our conversations, the great Spanish playwright and poet Federico Garcia Lorca wrote about the inequalities he saw while living in 1930s America. Now, Spanish bassist and composer Alexis Cuadrado has set those poems to music. He unveils his jazz song cycle, "A Lorca Soundscape," live in our studio.

No need to pronounce Gardía Lorca instead of García Lorca... Only a very small fraction of Spanish speakers do it...
