Rock's tangled roots well documented
14 May 2019 | by gortxSee all my reviews

RUMBLE: THE INDIANS WHO ROCKED THE WORLD (2018) - Catherine Bainbridge and Alfonso Maiorana's interesting Documentary got a brief theatrical release last year, and is now streaming via iTunes, Youtube etc.. Taking it's title from Native American guitarist Link Wray's pounding tune, RUMBLE attempts to show the link from Native American music (particularly its ryhymic aspects) to much of contemporary music. It succeeds to a large degree as it traces how Native Americans and African Americans were often discriminated against and thrust together by larger society (and inter-married). Native American musicians combined with black performers to create the mix of blues and folk to create rock 'n roll. Some of the connections seem more tenuous than others, but, the history is well told. Interview subjects ranging from Taj Mahal to Buffy St. Marie to Robbie Robertson to Tommy Ramone give insight (Marie and Robertson are of Native American descent). The Doc loses a bit of its focus as it enters the more modern era, but RUMBLE is a solid introduction to this aspect of rock's tangled roots.
