Historical Background

Tres Duendes is Spanish. It is usually translated as "Three Goblins" or "Three Elves", though "Three Duendes" is probably the best translation. In spanish a "duende" is like a gnome. A "Duende" is a small and magic (folk) creature.

In Spanish folklore (Iberian Peninsula, expanded to Mexico, Central America, and South America too), the Duende is a type of house spirit, a fairy which appears as a middle-aged woman dressed in green robes and with long icicle-like fingers. They are extremely jealous of humans and are known to take over houses, throwing things and moving furniture about. Duende is apparently derived from the Spanish words duen de casa, meaning "lord of the house".


Duende is also a Spanish concept which refers to a creative force, a force, an energy which comes from within, fueling the drive to produce a work of art (in any form). It is considered a force of spontaneous creativity. While the entire range of arts are considered to have duende, duende, they felt, was concentrated in music, dance, and poetry when spoken. It is also sometimes used to refer to a charm or magnetism an artist or performer has over their audience, captivating them with their work. Duende is frequently considered a very hard word to translate due to the lack of a word for the concept in other languages.
