Re: Duende

"I chose the word Duende, a word the Spanish poet Frederico Garcia Lorca said represented "a power, not a work. It is a struggle, not a thought." A guitar maestro had once explained it to him this way: 'The duende is not in the throat; the duende climbs up inside you, from the soles of the feet.' When people ask me to explain it, I usually say it's an art that asks you to do battle with what is darkest in you, and what comes out is already baptized by black sounds."

Re: Duende


All in all I figure the word cannot be defined, pinned down on some Riker mount, or caught in fly paper. Not even sure it can be localized. And when Lorca calls it "what is darkest in you" he misleads. Duende is not born of any individual, not something to be possessed. It is dark, of the earth, and itself takes possession. It is a daemon. Dionysian in nature. Chthonic.
