Devendra Banhart is a Venezuelan American singer-songwriter and visual artist. Devendra is an hindu name reserved to the god of the skies, the thunders and the rain, and his middle name is Obi (directly from Star Wars), very creative parents.
Although he was born in Houston, Texas, he was raised by his mom in Venezuela, until he moved to California and started to study in San Francisco, until 2000, when he dropout school and went to Paris to play. He just released his new album “Mala”. On his FB fan page shows his love for Venezuela and its music, especially for our Simon Diaz.
His music, it’s really hard to describe, it’s a mix between psych folk, indie, instrumental, folk, LO-FI, and _______ ( listen and insert here whatever other gender you want to add).
He dated Natalie Portman in 2008, and he convinced her to be in one of his videos as a Bollywood princess.
