Noah Hunt and Mato Nanji have been swirling around each other on the Rock circuit for a long time. In the late ’90s, Blues Rock quartet Indigenous came onto the scene. Nanji, the founding guitarist and lead singer of the band formed on the Yankton Sioux Reservation in South Dakota, was touted as a six-string virtuoso, earning comparisons to heavyweights like Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jimi Hendrix. Although the band was originally made up of family members, Nanji took on the Indigenous banner in the mid-’00s and, with a rotating cast of musicians, has built a long and successful career. Indigenous’ albums (including the most recent, Time is Coming) have consistently earned critical acclaim and high entries on the Blues charts.
