Federico García Lorca’s radio talk Semana Santa en Granada was broadcast on 5th April 1936. In it, Lorca describes the traditional Holy Week festivities in his hometown of Granada, Spain. He conveys the pageantry and spirituality of the processions and rituals associated with this significant period in the Christian calendar. Lorca’s narrative likely blends rich cultural observations with personal insights, reflective of his deep ties to Andalusian culture and heritage. The talk is set against the tense prelude to the Spanish Civil War, adding a layer of poignancy to his chronicle of local customs. This broadcast stands as an articulation of cultural identity during a period of significant historical upheaval.
