Rumble tells the story of an essential, and until now, missing chapter in the history of American Music: the Indigenous influence. Featuring music icons Jimi Hendrix, Buffy Sainte-Marie, and Redbone, among others, “Rumble” shows how these talented Native musicians helped shape the soundtracks of our lives.
The New York Times called it, “An encore for the Native Americans who shook up rock ‘n’ roll.” It also received rave reviews in the Los Angeles Times, the Washington Post, The Guardian, and the Hollywood Reporter (to name a few).
