A Conversation for Flamenco
Gaia de la Frontera Started conversation Jul 7, 2001
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.

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!
