Devendra Banhart, whose new album, Ma, was released last month on Nonesuch, sets out on the road to perform songs from the new album and more. The twenty-five city North American tour—his first since 2017—begins at The Majestic Ventura Theater in Ventura, California, tonight, and includes shows in San Francisco, Seattle, Los Angeles, Chicago, Mexico City, Detroit, Toronto, Brooklyn, and more. He heads to Europe to tour in January and February. For details and tickets, see below and visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

Banhart has partnered with PLUS1 so that $1 from every US ticket sold (excluding a festival in Austin) will go to World Central Kitchen, an organization founded by José Andrés to fight hunger around the world. With every ticket bought in Canada, $1 will go to support Rainbow Railroad to help LGBTI people around the world escape persecution and violence.

Ma is "sublimely understated, border-blurring folk rock," the Los Angeles Times. "There is a truth and authenticity to the songs via their warmth and generosity," says MOJO. "These are vignettes of lived experiences. Groovy and moving, in all the right directions." "Banhart's singular world remains as intoxicating as ever on the earthly, analogue-sounding Ma," says Q. "It feels as if all of human life is here."

To pick up a copy of Ma, head to your local record store, Amazon, iTunes, and the Nonesuch Store; the album can also be heard on Spotify and Apple Music.

    Aria Code, the Rhiannon Giddens–hosted podcast from The Metropolitan Opera and WQXR, returns for its second season today. This time around, Giddens leads the conversation as opera singers and experts examine ten arias centered on the theme of desire. "I've been thinking about what makes great arias so powerful," Giddens says, "and I think a big part of it is that they tap into our strongest emotions. One of the emotions that come up over and over again in opera, and in life, is desire." You can hear the first episode of the new season, on Verdi's Lady Macbeth, here.
