Ordway Music Theater

Approximate Run-time: 90 min

Rounding out our focus on Native artists for the Target® World Music & Dance series is the powerhouse blues-rock band, Indigenous. Led by front man Mato Nanji from the Yankton Sioux Reservation in South Dakota, Indigenous is influenced by the music of Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, and Carlos Santana.

Their latest album, “Time is Coming” is dedicated to the indigenous youth and all young people on the indigenous reservations.
