Perhaps somewhat bound to the cosmological mysticism of his very name, making reference to both the Hindu god of thunder and rain and a legendary “Star Wars” jedi, Devendra Obi Banhart has spent the last decade delivering some of the most eccentrically strange folk music out there, full of freak-driven acoustic guitar, global rhythms and psychedelic consciousness. Featuring gentle, warbling vocals over free-association turns of phrase, Banhart is at his most laid-back, maybe even his most straightforward, with his latest album, “What We Will Be.” Bringing plenty of trippy idiosyncrasies, Banhart performs at the National on Tuesday, Aug. 17, at 7 p.m. $20-$23.
