DUENDE

DUENDE

According to various folklore Duendes may represent a mythological, goblin like creature.   There are many variations of Duende tales… both good and evil.

Duende may also represent the spirit and soul of the artistic and musical world. The raw response to the emotions evoked by the joys and sorrows of our existence.

According to Christopher Maurer, editor of ‘In Search of Duende‘,  “at least four elements can be isolated in Lorca’s vision of duende:   irrationality, earthiness, a heightened awareness of death, and a dash of the diabolical”.

I couldn’t help but imagine a few of our mythical Side Bar monkeys pulling a few Duende pranks, which leads me to believe Duende, Sunday, March 16th is going to be quiet entertaining!
