From folk songstress Buffy Sainte-Marie to rock artist Link Wray, whose 1958 song Rumbleinfluenced the likes of Pete Townshend and Jimmy Page, Native American musicians have had an indelible effect on the music industry that often is overlooked. Directors Catherine Bainbridge (Reel Injun) and Alfonso Maiorana bring this contribution to light by profiling important Native American musicians through reenactments, archival footage, and conversations with artists who knew them. Tony Bennett, Iggy Pop, Martin Scorsese, and more discuss the impact Indigenous voices have had on their lives and on music as a whole.
