"Duende is a quintessentially Spanish, supposedly untranslatable, concept originally referring to a supernatural fairy or spirit and still widely used in this sence in Latin America. In Spain, the term has come to signify a moment of cathartic ecsatcy in art, particulary flamenco and bullfighting (bullfighting is concidered art, not sport in Spain), when the artist or performer, and by extension the audience, is consumed with the raw, volitle energy of pure creation in the face of death."
