Flamenco Quote of the Day

The great artists of the south of Spain, whether Gypsy or flamenco, whether they sing, dance or play, know that no emotion is possible unless the duende comes. They may be able to fool people into thinking they have duende--authors and painters and literary fashion-mongers do so every day--but we have only to pay a little attention and not surrender to indifference in order to discover the fraud and chase away their clumsy artifice.

Federico Garcia Lorca from "Play and Theory of the Duende"
