Once again, we are indebted to the National Aboriginal Music Countdown for introducing us to new artists. This week, we’ve been enjoying hearing the band Indigenous for the first time. Mato Nanji – the warm, textured voice and spirited guitar of the band – is from the Nakota Nation in South Dakota. Their latest album, The Acoustic Sessions, is 11 tracks of richly layered roots, folk, soul-twinged beauty – a shift from the band’s previous, more charged and visceral sound. .”I’ve wanted to make an album like this for years,” Nanji said and we’re glad he did. The band is currently on tour, on the NAMC and right here on RPM.
