Devendra Banhart

Ten years after the release of his first album, Devendra Banhart might have shed his dishevelled locks, but he remains as strange and unpredictable as ever. Born in Houston to a Venezuelan mother, he released his eighth record this year, entitled 'Mala' (2013), which has taken him to New York after a stint in California. The title of the album is not a reference to the Spanish word for 'bad', but a Serbian word meaning 'small', which sums up the spirit of the album perfectly: an intimate collection of songs full of his by now trademark, unusual folk-pop.
