Beautiful music. It is hard to find something like that in mainstream. But if you are persistent then you might stumbled upon instrumentalists like Calonego. Artists who make you feel and think differently.

duende is a fairy– or goblin-like mythological creature from Iberian, Latin American and Filipino folklore. Duendes may also have some traits similar to goblins and kobolds.

The word is often considered to be the Spanish and Portuguese equivalent of the English word “sprite” or the Japanese word yōkai and is used as an umbrella term for any fairy-like being such as goblinspixies and elves. I ripped this info off Wiki. Thank you music for broadening my mind!

It is also the title of his single which shows the energy and playfulness the duende. The piece has two parts: the tune starts with a playful tapping and then progresses into the percussive shower of notes. The second part is mellow and reveals the poignant soul of the artist.
