duende – what a lovely word!

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Duende or tener duende (“having duende”) loosely means having soul, a heightened state of emotion, expression and authenticity, often connected with flamenco.[1] The artistic and especially musical term was derived from the duende, a fairy or goblin-like creature in Spanish mythology.
