Quick history question: What do Robbie Robertson, Jimi Hendrix, Mildred Bailey, Buffy Saint-Marie and Charley Patton all have in common?  They all have Native American Blood running through their veins.  A rather large piece of history has been missing. If you love rock, pop or jazz don’t miss this documentary about the influence Native American Indians had on the music and the musicians. “It changed everything: Rumble made an incredible mark on the whole evolution of where rock’n roll was gonna go.  And then I found out that he, Link Wray was an Indian.” Robbie Robertson. “From 16 to 20 years old... that’s the only thing I listened to, Mildred Bailey.  She sang perfect, for me...she was a great jazz singer!” Tony Bennett. “Hell, yeah, I play guitar!  You know who taught me how to play?  Charley Patton!  Charley Patton was an Indian and he was the baddest mother*****r in the world!” Howlin’Wolf.

“As Catherine Bainbridge & Alfonso Maiorana’s astoundingly rich & resonant music documentary makes abundantly clear, American popular music & the history of rock and roll itself wouldn’t be the same without the contributions of Native American performers” The Hollywood Reporter
