What the critics are saying:
The influence of Native Americans on nearly a century of popular music is eloquently demonstrated in this engaging documentary.
– Hollywood Reporter
“Rumble” asks us to be still for a moment and to listen to the heartbeat – at once familiar and newly strange – that pumps the lifeblood that flows through the songs this country is known for.
– Washington Post
In the end, the story is one not only of rock- and pop-culture history, but of human persistence and indigenous contributions that have been historically (and often intentionally) overlooked.
