This powerful documentary about the role of Native Americans in contemporary music history-featuring some of the greatest music stars of our time-exposes a critical missing chapter, revealing how indigenous musicians helped shape the soundtracks of our lives and, through their contributions, influenced popular culture.
Rumble is an important documentary, foundational to any survey of Native American musics, but it runs out of time before getting to the contributions and influence of Jim Pepper (Kaw/Muskogee Creek) and Don Cherry (Choctaw/African American), both pioneers in the development of experimental jazz and "world" music. Both created important and original bodies of work.
