Devendra Banhart has announced Splendour sideshows in Sydney and Melbourne with local support Husky. Devendra Banhart’s eccentric mix of lyrical musings, warbling vocals, folk rhythms and vibrant melodies saw him likened to Van Morrison, John Lennon and Jeff Buckley before he was crowned a preeminent force within the growing freak-folk genre.
Banhart will be accompanied by his band The Grogs for live renditions of his songs such as Lover, Chinese Children, I Feel Just Like A Child and Little Yellow Spider.
