The rocking documentary Rumble at long last reveals the untold story of a profound, essential, and, until now, missing chapter in the history of rock n’ roll: the Indigenous influence. Investigating the influential careers of such performers as “Queen of Swing” Mildred Bailey, Delta bluesman Charley Patton, Jimi Hendrix, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Redbone, Robbie Robertson, and Link Wray, whose iconic counter-culture anthem from 1958 lends the film its title – and, for what it’s worth, is still the only instrumental song to ever be banned from the radio – Rumble shows how these talented Native musicians helped shape the soundtracks of our lives. Inspired by the Smithsonian Institution exhibit “Up Where We Belong: Native Musicians In Popular Culture,” created by Tim Johnson and Stevie Salas for the National Museum of the American Indian, the film features electrifying performance footage and engaging testimony from a long list of music artists, historians, and experts, including Steven Van Zandt, Iggy Pop, Tony Bennett, Taj Mahal, Martin Scorsese, John Trudell, Steven Tyler, George Clinton, Stevie Salas, Slash and many more. An eye-opening look at a little known but vitally important component of American popular music, Rumble is an astonishing documentary that shines a spotlight on generations of phenomenal artists for whom recognition is long overdue.

Stevie Salas, Executive Producer and co-creator of Rumble, is a proud Apache and a world-renowned guitarist and producer of music, film and television. As a guitar player, Salas has recorded, written and produced with artists as diverse as George Clinton, Mick Jagger, Public Enemy, Justin Timberlake, T.I., and Rod Stewart. A major label recording artist who has sold over two million solo albums around the world, Guitar Player magazine named Salas one of the top 50 guitarists of all-time. He was Music Director and consultant on American Idol from 2006 – 2010. He is also an accomplished composer, credited with providing the score for several popular films, including the guitar score for Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure.
