Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked The World

“RUMBLE: The Indians Who Rocked the World” reveals the untold story of the Native American influence on popular music. The film travels deep into the South, guided by Pura Fe (Tuscarora/Taino), Alvin Youngblood Hart and Cyril Neville (Choctaw) bringing to light a missing chapter in our history books: How Indigenous music was part of the very fabric of American popular music from the beginning, but the Native American contribution was left out of the story, until now.

In “RUMBLE” some of the world’s most iconic rock stars  and influential musicians – Buddy Guy, Steven Van Zandt, Tony Bennett, Taj Mahal, Cyril Neville, Ivan Neville, Quincy Jones, John Trudell, Steven Tyler, Taboo (The Black Eyed Peas), Pat Vegas (Redbone), Robbie Robertson, Buffy Sainte Marie, Iggy Pop, Wayne Kramer (MC5), Marky Ramone (The Ramones), Slash (Guns ‘n’ Roses), Rhiannon Giddens (Carolina Chocolate Drops),  Derek Trucks, Alvin Youngblood Hart, Jackson Browne, Joy Harjo, Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters),  Pura Fe (Ulali), Dan Auerbach (The Black Keys), Matt Sorum (Guns ‘n’ Roses), Robert Trujillo (Metallica) and many others – speak about the deep influence these iconic Native American musicians had on their art and lives.
