Duende is an exciting duo based in Cleveland, Ohio, which combines the sounds of the classical guitar and the saxophone. A collaboration between saxophonist Ethan Miller and guitarist Krystin O’Mara, Duende frequently performs on established concert series throughout the United States. Their first CD, “Travel Notebook,” was released on Centaur Records in 2015. The group’s musical philosophy is derived from traditional Flamenco terminology in which “duende” is defined as having soul, a heightened state of emotion, and authenticity. Duende performs a mixture of traditional classical repertoire, contemporary compositions, and works with Spanish, flamenco, jazz, Brazilian, and world music influences.
