Video Naturalismo

I plan on making Wednesday’s here a day to feature the visual side of artists. First up I have an amazing live performance by a very young Devendra Banhart (One of my favorite live performances ever) and the Freak Folk documentary “The Eternal Children” directed by David Kleijwegt

Devendra Banhart – “Shake Sugaree”]


Some Background on this video:


I shot this about 3 or 4 years ago I think, at the knitting factory (there is also another song i posted from the same show; http:// called copper kettle). He was opening up for the bunny brains (?), and performing under the name Abra. There were about 20 people in the audience at that point, I’d never heard of him and was videotaping just by chance.

the film look is actually a filter applied to video. (the video camera was also on a low light setting which gives it a film look, and then I did some color correction)


David Kleijwegt: The Eternal Children, Parts I-VI


  1. Thank you so much for posting these beautiful videos – in these days of commonplace negativity the artists express so much of the hope, sincerity and creativity that make this music so vital & life enhancing.

  2. Can you say any more about The Eternal Children? Or should I just watch it and not worry about background information? :) Thanks!

  3. I did some searching and details are kind of scarce about it. I presume that it’s difficult to find information about because the director is of foreign origin.

    I like the sound of that, “foreign origin”

    I’m useless, sorry…

    Just check it out though, it is great. Really interesting.
