TABOO, (Black Eyed Peas) Shoshone Nation – Film Participant

Acclaimed at our inaugural DocLands Film Festival, this revelatory documentary explores the role of Native Americans in popular music history. Focusing on such icons as Link Wray, Jimi Hendrix, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Charley Patton, Mildred Bailey, Jesse Ed Davis, Robbie Robertson and Randy Castillo, the film illustrates the distinctive mark that artists with indigenous heritage have made on the music of our lives. Their stories are told by some of America’s greatest music legends who knew them, played music with them and were inspired by them, including Buddy Guy, Quincy Jones, Tony Bennett, Iggy Pop, Steven Tyler and Stevie Van Zandt, among others. American popular music has always had Native American influence, but these contributions have been left out of the story…until now. Directors: Catherine Bainbridge, Alfonso Maiorana. (Canada 2017) 102 min.
