We are excited to announce that we have received permission to screen “Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World”. “Rumble is an electrifying look at the Native American influence in popular music — despite attempts to ban, censor and erase Indian culture. The film reveals how early pioneers of the blues and jazz had Native American roots, and as the folk-rock era took hold in the ’60s and ’70s, Native Americans such as Peter La Farge and Buffy Sainte-Marie helped to define its evolution, while Native guitarists and drummers such as Link Wray, Jimi Hendrix, Jesse Ed Davis, and many more forever changed the trajectory of rock and roll. Their stories are told by some of America’s greatest music legends who knew them, played music with them, and were inspired by them, including Robbie Robertson, George Clinton, Taj Mahal, Slash, Jackson Browne, Taboo, Buddy Guy, Quincy Jones, Derek Trucks, Tony Bennett, Iggy Pop, Steven Tyler and Stevie Van Zandt.” ~rumblethemovie.com
