Remembering Duende and Garcia Lorca in Ronda

The black honours death to produce its real sound.

The knife gleams; there’s a bitter smell, and a shadow, on the arena.

Only Duende has black sound.

What is Duende ?

Duende is your moment of truth, when you stand over the abyss to produce your greatest work.  Duende is the sublime.
