Freak folk provocateur Devendra Banhart has maintained his musical legacy since his breakthrough album Smokey Rolls Down Thunder Canyon by taking the high road with the two albums What Will We Be and Mala. Breathing with a poetic sensibility and meandering down the experimental path where folk, indie, and ambient music intersect, both Mala and What Will We Be answer the question of what's beyond Thunder Canyon. Tonight at The Observatory, the multi-cultural artist-musician indulges audiences with his somber bi-lingual (sometimes tri-lingual) lyrics and warm instrumental arrangements, giving us a wonderful precursor to the upcoming summer months ahead.
