“Rumble” was released in 1958 by Link Wray, who has the blood of Native Americans. It was banned from being broadcast because of its aggressive sound and “promoting juvenile delinquency” despite the instrumental song.
It’s about how Indian music has influenced various genres of music such as rock, jazz, blues, folk, and funk, including the song, which is said to have neither punk nor metal without its existence, and their richness. It reveals how music has been wiped out of the history of popular music.
Interview footage includes former “The Band” Robbie Robertson and “Black Eyed Peas” taboo, who also have Native American roots. It also features Quincy Jones, Steven Tyler, and film director Martin. Gorgeous faces, such as Scorsese are gathered as well.
Before and after the screening, Mr. Peter Barakan and Mr. Shin Miyata will be invited for a special screening with one of the best sound systems in Tokyo, which is proud of Harezu!
