“Rumble: the Indians Who Rocked the World” is putting on a concert series bringing the songs from the film to the stage.

The concert is being put on by Rezolution Pictures and tours across Ontario this month with an upcoming stop at Brantford’s Sanderson Centre.

The show reveals the contributions indigenous artists have made to North American popular music.
