This uplifting, much acclaimed Canadian made film has won accolades and awards internationally. Featuring rockers likeJimi Hendrixand Robbie Robertson, delta blues pioneer Charley Patton, jazz singer Mildred Bailey and other icons likeBuffy Sainte-Marie, the film traces the long — and long unsung — influence of Native artists on the North American musical landscape.
