Winner of the Hot Docs Audience Award and Rogers Audience Award for Best Canadian Documentary!

Rumble reveals an essential and, until now, missing chapter in the history of popular music: the Indigenous influence. Lifting the veil on the enormous impact made by First Nations and Native American musicians including Robbie Robertson, Link Wray, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Charley Patton, Jimi Hendrix, Jesse Ed Davis and more, Rumble celebrates their genre-changing and undeniably catchy influence. Blending audio archives, concert footage and interviews with industry icons from Tony Bennett to Steven Tyler and Martin Scorsese, this Hot Docs hit and Sundance award-winner is an unforgettable and political exploration of a musical history that was silenced for too long. ESSENTIAL AND FASCINATING.

With an introduction by Gary Bailie; producer of the Blue Feather Music Festival.

  • Directed by Catherine Bainsbridge and Alfonso Maiorana
