As one of today’s premier guitarists, Indigenous front man Mato Nanji has captivated audiences with his Vaughan- and Hendrix-like prowess since coming on the scene with his family band’s award-winning debut album, “Things We Do,” in 1998.

The blues world immediately took notice of the young native musicians from the Yankton Sioux Reservation in South Dakota. They landed a spot on the 1999 B.B. King Blues Tour; their 2000 sophomore release, “Circle,” was produced by Stevie Ray Vaughan’s co-songwriter Doyle Bramhall; they received a invitation in 2002 from the Hendrix Estate to join the Experience Hendrix Tour, of which Nanji is still a roster member of guitar legends paying tribute to the legacy of Jimi Hendrix.

In 2006, the Indigenous siblings would choose to head in different musical directions, with Mato left to carry on with the band’s name and music. Several Indigenous discs and musical collaborations later, Indigenous’ 10th release, “Time Is Coming” (Blues Bureau International) was released in May 2014. Nanji dedicates the CD to “the indigenous youth and all young people on the indigenous reservations.”
