He even joked about one of their songs being in a Tim Burton adaptation of his children's book (which he sheepishly admitted wasn't true). The music was haunting, mysterious and spiritual. Soothing vocal harmonies compounded beautifully with their exotic instrumentation. It wasn't long before there was dancing behind the seated crowd and by the encore, everyone was out of their seat soaking up the energy.
