The influences of Indigenous artists across a number of musical genres are widespread,
And they will be celebrated in Rumble: The Concert, which has two performances Wednesday at the Sanderson Centre in Brantford.
The concert features an impressive lineup of musicians performing songs as a narrative to reveal the Indigenous musicians, who played key roles in shaping myriad musical categories, including folk, rock, jazz and blues.
“The concert will tell the story of a profound and, until now, missing chapter in the history of North American and worldwide popular music,” says Tim Johnson, a Mohawk from Six Nations, who is the producer and director of the concert.
Johnson curated the 2010 exhibition Up Where We Belong: Native Musicians in Popular Culture, at the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian, which in turn, inspired the making of the award-winning documentary film Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World.
So, Rumble: The Concert seems a natural progression.
