TAIMANE has graced audiences around the world with her special unique musical talent on the Ukulele. TAIMANE will be invoking the Duende this Saturday, April 18, 2015 with DJ Nocturna and Lana Saldania. The Duende, the recurring theme on A Feast of Friends, is the dark creative inspiration set forth by Federico Garcia Lorca in his lecture in 1933 called “the Play and Theory of the Duende.” The Duende is present in many artists, whether it be in dance, in music or in art. It is the spirit of evocation, of spontaneous creation. It is a performance that gives us chills, makes us smile or makes us cry giving us that sense of astonishment, especially one such as Taimane’s performance on her ukulele. The Duende particularly expressive in music and dance, especially the flamenco as ‘The duende is not in the throat; the duende climbs up inside you, from the soles of the feet.’
The passionate Nick Cave said “All love songs must contain duende for the love song is never truly happy. It must first embrace the potential for pain. The love song must resonate with the whispers of sadness and the echoes of grief …within the fabric of the love song, within its melody, its lyric, one must sense an acknowledgement of its capacity for suffering….”
