Rumble, the concert reveals the talented Indigenous musicians who helped shape the soundtracks of our lives.

Inspired by the Smithsonian Institution exhibit  Up Where We Belong: Native Musicians in Popular Culture and featuring video clips from the Sundance and Hot Docs award-winning film  Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked The World  by Rezolution Pictures (Montreal), the concert will tell the story of a profound and, until now, missing chapter in the history of North American and worldwide popular music. Featuring songs by Native music icons  Charley Patton, Mildred Bailey, Link Wray, Jimi Hendrix, Jesse Ed Davis, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Robbie Robertson, and others. 

Featuring two-time Juno Award-winner Derek Miller, the legendary Mark LaForme, Kenny Lee Lewis of the Steve Miller Band, Native American Music Award-winners The Ollivanders, local jazz virtuosos Juliet Dunn and Peter Shea, singer/songwriter Rob Lamothe, and more, this vibrant and awe-inspiring stage production mixes live musical performances with video clips from the celebrated documentary Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World.
