2nd annual Tulsa Roots Rocks the Green
Sunday, September 22, 2013 at 5:30 pm - 6:45 pmFree
One of blues-rock’s most exciting talents, Mato Nanji’s warm, dusty voice and soaring guitar have always provided the heartbeat of this hard-rocking band from South Dakota’s Nakota Nation. Indigenous, with Nanji at its core, formed in the late ’90s and quickly transcended it’s regional roots to stake out a national rep. The music is teeming with Nanji’s ringing, sustained notes, artfully bent strings, and controlled bottleneck guitar. In the past few years, Nanji’s RandB-inflected vocal prowess has caught up to his oft-praised guitar work to form a new sound: a nuanced, well-balanced blend of blues, soul, RandB, psychedelia and even country. The band’s latest effort is Chasing The Sun.
