Why we're called duende

 

Duende is said to be the hardest Spanish word to translate to English. The meaning is akin to spirit, passion, inspiration – a spontaneous feeling arising in creativity. Its particularly relevant to the arts that disappear, that are born and die perpetually, like the performance of a dance or a song.

In 2014 Duende started as a pop up restaurant, appearing and disappearing around the Chilterns, so the meaning seemed especially relevant. Duende restaurant is now settling down in a permanent location in Somerset.

"The duende never repeats itself, any more than the waves of the sea do in a storm”

 – Lorca, poet
