Federico García Lorca's popular folk song collection "Las Canciones Populares Españolas" was banned under Franco's dictatorship and today the music survives but marginally within the Spanish subconscious. Taking their cue from Lorca and La Argentinita's infectious 1931 recording of the songs, Josephine Foster and her partner Spanish musician Victor Herrero have arranged the poetically-rich collection for their new acoustic band, formed while living in the Grenadine Sierra. Anda Jaleo is the band's live recording of "Las Canciones" -- a visceral celebration of the persistence of popular anonymous song.
