L'Ham de Foc was one of the leading groups of a new folk movement in Spain, that worked the traditional roots into a new, modern music concept. But L'Ham de Foc's work was not just a superficial look at its roots. The musicians' intention was to go back to where things originally came from, to learn how to play instruments, techniques and performances from first hand. Mediterranean folk music, including their own Valencian music; Greek music; and also music from India or Northern Africa; were main influences. This mixture was responsible for a widespread acceptance of their music.
