Independent Lens


Independent Lens, Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World

Saturday, Jan. 26, at 10:30 p.m.
Repeats Sunday, Jan. 27, at 3 a.m.

Also airs on Fusion on Monday, Jan. 21, at 10 p.m. and Saturday, Jan. 26, at 1 p.m.

Take an electrifying look at the Native American influence in popular music. As this film reveals, early pioneers of the blues such as Charlie Patton had Native as well as African American roots, and one of the first and most influential jazz singers, Mildred Bailey, had a voice trained on Native American songs. As the folk rock era took hold in the ‘60s and ‘70s, more Native Americans helped to define its evolution.
