It fused the poetry of the late Leonard Cohen and Federico Garcia Lorca with the voice of flamenco giant Enrique Morente.For Cohen, a huge admirer of flamenco and Lorca – so much so that he named his daughter after the Spanish poet – the record was a delight.In an emotional speech, Cohen explained that he had been unable to find his voice as a poet until he read the verses of Lorca, murdered by nationalist forces during Spain's 1936-39 civil war.The result: A rush of emotions in which Morente sings the verses of Cohen and Lorca with his powerful voice, accompanied by a fusion of synthesizers and folk singing, drums and flamenco "palmas" (handclapping), electric and classic guitars.Cohen, however, declined to participate in the documentary due to his fragile health, and he only appears in excerpts from a 1997 interview.
