Interviews

Devendra Banhart

Tangled in Tongues

Oct 01, 2007

“I'm under the impression that it isn't nearly as eclectic as it could have been if we had included the Arabic song, the Yiddish song, the other Portuguese song, and another song..." Devendra Banhart pauses as he searches his mental rolodex for the Native American tribe whose language he adopted for another of the songs that was left off his fifth full-length release, Smokey Rolls Down Thunder Canyon. Sitting backstage at the Rio Theater in Santa Cruz, CA, Banhart acknowledges no grand design in the sprawling mix of Spanish folk variants, acoustic ballads, '50s pop, and hairy rockers that compose his latest opus. Add in a little French and Portuguese, and you have an album that reflects the citizen of the world status Banhart has cultivated through years of travels. He has little concern that the album won't communicate with English-only speakers. More
