RUMBLE On: More Native American Musicians You Should Know

While November and Native American Heritage Month are coming to a close, Indigenous culture should be recognized year-round. This post about Native American musicians focuses on the evolution of Indigenous music, from the "forerunners" of rock and roll (for example, Jimi Hendrix and Robbie Robertson) to the modern music scene (including hip-hop artist Prolific The Rapper and "folkloric" singer Lila Downs). The post profiles 11 Native American artists spanning genres and geographic locations. Each artist profile includes a brief description of their work and story, as well as an embedded clip of one of their songs. Readers will also find these songs, and many bonus selections, compiled in a Spotify playlist (linked at the top of the post). The blog post is largely inspired by a film of a similar name, RUMBLE: The Indians Who Rocked the World, which offers viewers "an electric look at Native American influence in popular music, going deep into the Indigenous foundations of rock." Gregg McVicar published this piece in January 2019. McVicar is also the "host and producer of the daily eclectic music show UnderCurrents," which readers can tune into nationwide via Native Voice One.
