The relation between Lorca and Flamenco is complicated [explain reasons for this]. Singing Lorca to Flamenco is never a simple or straightforward process. I have identified five processes (overlapping at times) in Flamenco versions of Lorca:
In other words: bridging the gap between Lorca and Flamenco leads Flamenco to innovate in their own art form, sometimes by fusing it with other styles of music, sometimes by moving toward a more classical mode (making Flamenco less of a vernacular style, more of a "song-setting" of Lorca). Sometimes they bring non-Flamenco related texts of Lorca into the Flamenco world, and sometimes they popularize Lorca by associating his poetry with music styles more easily consumed by the public.
