Leonard Cohen Acceptance Speech Premio Principe de Asturias

As I mentioned in a previous post (https://carmenferreiroesteban.wordpress.com/2011/06/04/congratulations-to-leonard-cohen/) the Canadian poet Leonard Cohen won the Spanish award Principe de Asturias in Literature.

Here you can listen to his moving speech while accepting the award in which he credits Federico Garcia Lorca for giving him his voice and an unknown young Spaniard who taught him how to play guitar.

Beautiful!
