WHAT IS THE DUENDE?
According to the definition in the Diccionario de la Real Academia Española, the expression duende when used in Flamenco means "ineffable, mysterious charm", which isn’t particularly descriptive.
Personally, I would say that the duende comes from far away, from past lives. How can a child sing with the voice of an old man? Because the child feels the pain of his ancestors; the duende comes from emotion, from the emptiness signifying new life, from the inside, from the blood. It comes from the ecstasy of the act of creation.
The duende does not lie, wears no mask. The duende is the trance, the duende is authentic. The power of Flamenco resides in the duende, the divine essence of Flamenco comes from the duende.
When an artiste feels touched by the duende, they achieve a quality and a feeling in their voice, in their dance and the touch almost seems to have come from other spheres. That’s when they feel at their happiest and able to transmit their true emotions.
An artiste with accompanied by an angel touched by the duende can cross human limits and turn Flamenco into a divine art form.
