A profound, essential, and—until now—missing chapter in the history of American music: the Indigenous Influence.

This revelatory documentary brings to light the profound and overlooked influence of Indigenous people on popular music in North America. Focusing on icons like Link Wray, Jimi Hendrix, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Taboo, Charley Patton, Mildred Bailey, Jesse Ed Davis, Robbie Robertson, and Randy Castillo, Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World shows how pioneering Native American musicians helped shape the soundtracks of our lives.
