'Rumble': Indians who rocked the world

| January 17, 2024 1:00 AM

Brought back by popular demand and coming to the Panida Theater on Friday, Jan. 26, is a free showing of the documentary "Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World."

The documentary explores the impact that native musicians in the United States and Canada have had on such musical genres as rock, pop, jazz, folk, blues, and more.

The film is brought to the Panida screen by 88.5 KRFY through a generous grant by the Bonner County Human Rights Task Force. Rumble was first shown in May 2018 at the Panida, and the audience response was overwhelmingly positive. 

Profiled artists include Jimi Hendrix, Link Wray, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Robbie Robertson, and many more. In fact, one profiled pop singer comes from North Idaho. Come see the film and find out who! Commentary from Steven Tyler, Taj Mahal, Martin Scorsese, Iggy Pop, and others provides the context in which the musical contributions are seen.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the film is shown at 7 pm. Bring the family to a free showing of this entertaining and educational film, but be forewarned: Iggy Pop has a potty mouth.
