East Tennessee PBS, Independent Lens and the International Storytelling Center invite you to a free screening of RUMBLE: The Indians Who Rocked the World
RUMBLE: The Indians Who Rocked the World is an electrifying look at the Native American influence in popular music — despite attempts to ban, censor and erase Indian culture. The film reveals how early pioneers of the blues and jazz had Native American roots, and as the
folk-rock era took hold in the ’60s and ’70s, Native Americans such as Peter La Farge and Buffy Sainte-Marie helped to define its evolution, while Native guitarists and drummers such as Link Wray, Jimi Hendrix, Jesse Ed Davis, and many more forever changed the trajectory of rock and roll.
