Devendra Banhart - Carmensita

I finally got to peek at Devendra Banhart's new video for "Carmensita", a track off of his latest album Smokey Rolls Down Thunder Canyon. I have to say, it's been a while since such a funny and humorous music video actually got to inspire me artistically. But then again, Devendra's vision as an artist mixed with the smooth catchy ambiance of his music would inspire anyone.

The use of bright bold colors and motifs from old 60's/70's Bollywood films was such great fun. And of course, seeing Natalie Portman was a definite bonus. (For those who don't know, Natalie is actually dating the musician himself.)

I now present you all with my musical inspiration of the moment, Devendra Banhart's "Carmensita".
