Indigenous with Chris Duarte | Bankhead Theater
Unforgettable Blues-Rock Style A second generation bluesman, Mato Nanji was born on a Sioux Reservation in South Dakota. He grew up listening to his father’s band and was equally inspired by the music of such legends as B.B. King, Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughn. Indigenous, originally a sibling band, has since evolved, but Nanji continues to deliver a rich, guitar-heavy blues sound, paying tribute to his native heritage through the storytelling of his songs. Guitarist Chris Duarte’s style has been called “ferocious blues.” A sorcerer of tone, his music is a constant evolution of sound and tempo so no matter how many times you see him, no two shows are alike. Indigenous, featuring Mato Nanji, on stage with Chris Duarte is guaranteed to be a once-in-a-lifetime blues-rock experience.
