Product Description

Native American Band Indigenous deliver their album Broken Lands for 2008. Indigenous were nominated in three categories and won the award for Best Blues album at the Aboriginal People's Choice Music Awards (APCMA). Indigenous is an American blues-rock group that came to prominence in the late 1990s. The band originally consisted of two brothers, Mato Nanji (vocals and guitar, b. 1974), Pte (bass guitar), along with their sister, Wanbdi (drums, vocals), and their cousin, Horse (percussion). Their music is heavily influenced by guitarist Stevie Ray Vaughan, as well as Jimi Hendrix and Carlos Santana. Mato Nanji's style and skill has drawn comparisons to each of these guitarists. The band has also shared the stage with artists of varying musical genres such as B. B. King, Santana, Bonnie Raitt, Joan Baez, the Indigo Girls, Jackson Browne.

About the Artist

Guitar virtuoso/singer/songwriter Mato Nanji returns as Indigenous with the new album BROKEN LANDS. BROKEN LANDS articulates an intensely personal record that pays tribute to Mato's Native American heritage. Raised as a member of the Nakota Sioux Nation on the Yankton Indian Reservation in South Dakota, Mato first came to musical prominence when he formed Indigenous with his brother, sister and cousin. In 1998, they released their debut, THINGS WE DO, which received wide, mass reception and included the Top 10 smash hit "Now That You're Gone" and the Top 20 rock singles "Things We Do" and "Got To Tell You." After three successful albums, the siblings went their separate ways, and Mato forged ahead as the face of Indigenous releasing his Vanguard debut, Chasing The Sun. CHASING THE SUN'S fiery blues prowess solidified Mato as one of bluesrock's most exciting talents. BROKEN LANDS marks an augmentation of the Blues into Roots, World and Americana territories, by incorporating native percussion, slide, lap steel and acoustic guitars.

One of my favorites.

This is a case where the whole is less than the sum of the parts for me.

The infallible Mato Nanji has done it again! 'Broken Lands' is another solid from top to bottom album, with not a single filler track to be found. And as much as I hate to admit it, I don't think the quality of this album has suffered a bit as a result of the parting of ways of Mato and his siblings. In fact, I'm on the fence as to whether or not this is Mato's best (non-live) album ever! I really can't rationally arrive at a conclusion when such consistent work is released time after time. Consequently, for me, Indigenous' albums are more about subtle contrasts rather than discernible degrees of perceived quality. However, with that being said, I'm sure you noticed that I qualified the "best" comment with the non-live proviso. As in all honesty, while 'Broken Lands' is fantastic, it's not the mind-blowing landmark Blues Rock release that 'Live At Pachyderm Studio' was. And that's all I am going to say about that, as I do not want to detract from the fact that 'Broken Lands' is another top-notch effort from Mato that deserves unadulterated recognition and acclaim, and should be considered solely on its own merit.

As I stated before 'Broken Lands' is an excellent album, and Mato's attention was obviously focused on the writing of songs to the best of his ability and creating a great album, as opposed to writing songs that would simply be vehicles that would allow him to show off his guitar chops. Personally I enjoy a little showboating now and then, but you have to give Mato due credit for self-discipline as he without question has the virtuosity to do endless self-indulgent guitar solos if he wanted to.

I went and saw Indigenous live a couple of nights ago and they blew my socks off. I picked up his latest cd after the concert and it's just as good as all the other ones Mato has released. If you never heard of Mato Nanji, you definetly owe it to yourself to check out any of his cd's, they're all good. And, if you have a chance to see him live, then you should definetly not miss it even if it means you have to call in sick to work the next day.

Mato Nanji is the next great blues guitarist.

A very cool surprise - new music from Indigenous!!!

There are plenty of skillful guitar slingers but many don't have the voice to keep up with licks. Mato sure does. Put his voice together with his fiery Telecaster and it's music that immediately says "Buy Me." I'm so pleased that this album smokes start to finish. Lots of emotion, lots of rockin', slow rollin' and smooth movin' -

"Broken Lands" is highly recommended!

Indigenous continues to climb my "favorites" list when it comes to music. This album is a little more low key than Chasing the Sun -- trust me, not a bad thing. Broken Lands is a really good album that stands on it's own. It's the same blues and feel that defines Indigenous, but it's looking in a different direction this time around.

This is definitely their best CD to date. Mato is fantastic with the new band members. Growing as an artist and able to blend his old style with a new and fresh sound.

I love this C.D. The band has a lot of variety in their music. The are authentic Native Americans and they sound just great.
This is a great band and a great CD.

Mato Nanji's New Album
I've listened to the album quite a few times now and I also think that it is an outstanding offering. I know what you mean when you say that you want him to "open it up" and cut loose on the guitar. But as you and I know that is not his typical style, and has only happened on 'Live At... Read More
