A folk song has over a thousand faces and you must meet them all. A folk song might vary in meaning¦ from one moment to the next. It depends on who's playing and who's listening. Bob Dylan
Avi and the Uprising is a defining example of Dylans words, musically Avi breaks a thousand traditions, while still honoring his musical heritage and capturing the most diverse of audiences, he meets them all. A classically trained bass baritone and a self taught guitarist, a certified Yogi with a degree in political science and a Gandhian philosopher, there is nothing ordinary about this man or this artist.
In "Wahe Guru" - a catchy and optimistic ditty about faith -the approach is vastly different, but accomplishes the same exciting result. Using a stop animation technique with a palette of beans (Yes, beans! Thousands of them!) a story is played out for the viewer seamlessly creating imagery that compliments the lyrics and organic vibe of the music that captures the spiritual tradition of India in a fun and endearing way. Even Avi makes his way in as a beaned version of himself, so check this video out and enjoy the incredibly unique approach to this clip!
