What is duende?
The Art of Flamenco sees Jason Webster revisit the subject which inspired his first book: the mysterious yet essential power which lies at the heart of Spain's most iconic musical expression.
Moved by the flamenco dance perfomances of his wife, Salud, Webster combines articles, essays, photographs, excerpts, and new translations of poetry by Federico Garc a Lorca in an exploration of this real yet indefinable quality.
Volume Two of the Mosaics of Spain series continues Webster's personal examination of a country that has been his passion for over thirty years, drawing on a wealth of writings and materials built up over that time. Impressionistic and multi-faceted, it delves deep into the enigmatic force which drives flamenco music and dance.
