The topic of my essay is the musical work of Federico García Lorca and the effect of music on poetry. The aim is to present an objective image of García Lorca, the musician, disregarding his reputation as poet and dramatist. In this extract, I discuss the theory of cante jondo. The differences between Lorca’s and later experts’ results are presented from the perspective of modern flamencology. The first disputed aspect is stylistic categorisation – while the poet makes a distinction between cante jondo and cante flamenco, flamencologists consider cante jondo as a subtype of flamenco. The origin of the genre is even more problematic, and, in the absence of written documents, the debate between the representatives of the Andalusian and the gypsy origin is still unclosed. Considering the place of origin of cante jondo Lorca did not state his opinion, therefore, based on some references, I try to clarify if he shared his teacher’s, Manuel de Falla’s opinion, which is different from what experts claim today. Only part of the analysis of Poema del cante jondo is published here, but after the in-depth examination of the volume it can be stated that despite the disputability of his theory, the poet could recreate the emotions and thoughtfulness of “deep song”.
