Reservation Blues

Indigenous's rock springs from the deepest roots in North America

The growing word of mouth on Indigenous already has landed it opening slots for Bob Dylan and the Dave Matthews Band. Nanji even fulfilled a dream recently when he was invited on stage by old inspiration Carlos Santana for an impromptu jam on some Bob Marley tunes. Santana apparently was as eager to throw down with Nanji as vice versa; the elder guitarist already had been captivated by the band's Austin City Limits appearance.

"We were just trying to get some tickets to the show, and our managers connected," Nanji remembers. "I was awful nervous, and I didn't even know what we'd be playing. But it was wonderful, and the energy that [Carlos] and the band were putting out was pretty awesome."

With Bramhall's help, Indigenous is approaching the light at the end of the tunnel.

Soon Nanji and Bramhall -- or "Big Doyle," as the group calls him -- will hunker down to work on the third record. ("Little Doyle," former Arc Angel and current Eric Clapton collaborator Doyle Bramhall Jr., also contributed some guitar work to Circle.) "I think we want to go heavier on the next one," Nanji says. "You know, rock out a little bit more." That's a goal that not every close-knit musical family shoots for. Just ask the Osmonds.
