A Conversation for Flamenco


Post 1

Thank you for describing your experience of duende. I belong to a number of other discussion forums for flamenco and other gitano (Gypsy) issues. I have been frustrated frequently by people describing duende as "butterflies in the stomach" or "a tingling in the spine". To say those things is like comparing the snap of a dry twig to a nuclear explosion. Clearly that sort of description is written by people who have never actually been fortunate enough to experience duende and probably never will.

Be well

Well, thank YOU... it's not a very good description, I had difficulties finding the right words to express it (English is a foreign language to me) but it's always a pleasure to meet someone who understands nevertheless!smiley - flyhi
