Chico says: "I tried to illustrate "the angel" or "duende" of Flamenco, as Spanish poet Federico Garcia Lorca called it. As a child in Andalusia, old folks told me about how "the angel" or "duende" presents itself in Flamenco and that everyone could feel it when it arrived. They perceived a spiritual oneness, like a trance."
