Flamenco Quote of the Day

The critic, Brooke Zern, writing about a performance of someone possessed with duende...

"It dilates the mind's eye, so that the intensity becomes almost unendurable...There is a quality of first-timeness, of reality so heightened and exaggerated that it becomes unreal, and this is characterized by a remarkable time-distortion effect which is frequent in nightmares...A friend of mine put it like this...Time moved like that for me once before--when I was in a crashing car."
