Devendra Banhart

I do enjoy some of the songs of American singer-songrwiter Devendra Banhart (a guy who was raised in Venezuela, hence his frequent use of Spanish in his songs).
J'aime beaucoup certaines des chansons de Devendra Banhart, un jeune chanteur américain qui a passé sa jeunesse au Vénézuela, d'où son amour pour l'espagnol, une langue qu'il utilise souvent pour ses textes.

I also tend to find him quite handsome in a weird way (I know that honeythief is going to throw stones at me for it :p) :


Here are two of his songs. First a live version of his hit : I Feel Just Like A Child, filmed during a French show ; then the crazy video he did for Carmencita, a video in which appears a famous American actress who was his girlfriend at the time : Natalie Portman.
Voici deux de ses chansons. Tout d'abord un live de son tube, I Feel Just Like A Child, donné sur les plateaux de Taratata, en France. Deuxièmement, le clip assez délirant de Carmensita, dans lequel apparaît une célèbre actrice américaine qui était alors sa compagne : Natalie Portman.

LOL Not stones exactly, but maybe a snowball or twelve. *g*

Still not convinced the 'unwashed sufi' look is a good one, though.

Just another reason to question your judgement in matters aesthetic. ;)
