This is a video of Jonathan Velasquez’s band “reVolt”. Jonathan started a mini-riot out of nothing but playing. His charisma reminded me of Jim Morrison of The Doors at The Whisky in 1966.
You might remember Jonathan as the star of my film Wassap Rockers (2005). He was only 15 years old then. I discovered him in South Central Los Angeles walking down the street.
This Fall, reVolt is playing regularly around Paris and you should catch them now.
