Federico Garcia Lorca
Gypsy Ballads
In 1986, Leonard Cohen's English translation of the poem "Pequeño vals vienés" by García Lorca reached #1 in the Spanish single charts (as "Take This Waltz", music by Cohen). Cohen has described García Lorca as being his idol in his youth, and named his daughter Lorca Cohen for that reason. Lorca was a Spanish poet and dramatist, 1898-1936; killed in the Spanish Civil War.
