Los Duendes is Vancouver's very own Psych Latin Fusion group. Infectious tropical rhythms intertwined with spicy Latin melodies designed make people get uplifted and groove. Tener Duende loosely means having soul, a heightened state of emotion, expression and authenticity. The artistic and especially musical term was derived from the Duende, an elf or goblin-like magical creature in Spanish mythology. El Duende is the spirit of evocation who comes from inside as a physical/emotional response to art. 'The Duende is not in the throat; the Duende climbs up inside you, from the soles of the feet.' It is what gives you chills, makes you smile or cry as a bodily reaction to an artistic performance that is particularly expressive.
