Galicia Songs for beating flax and cutting stones, wickedly barbed song duels, village pilgrimage songs, and popular dance tunes can be heard on these invaluable recordings made by Alan Lomax in remote villages of Galicia during the raw, cold winter of 1952. The Spanish Recordings Alan Lomax made these historic recordings in 1952 while traveling for months through Spanish villages, under formidable physical and political circumstances, during the Franco regime. Covering the breadth of Spain, these songs and dance melodies constitute a portrait of rural Spain's richly varied musical life, dispelling the common stereotypes of Spanish folk music. The Alan Lomax Collection The Alan Lomax Collection anthologizes the American, European and Caribbean field recordings, world music compilations, and ballad operas of writer, folklorist, and ethnomusicologist Alan Lomax. Recorded in 1952 by Alan Lomax.
