Editorial Reviews

Product Description

In the late 1990s, a whole slew of young guitarists emerged, all making a grab for the Stevie Ray Vaughan mantle. In this group, one must include Mato Nanji, guitarist for the family venture Indigenous. Unlike many of his predecessors, Mato Nanji may actually be deserving of the honor. That's a bold statement, but a listen to "Begin to Wonder," the instrumental "Holdin' Out," or especially "Nothing I Can Do" off of Things We Do are sufficient to justify it. The album opens with the low-key, midtempo title track, but it's on "Got to Tell You" that Things We Do really hits its stride. On the whole, this CD is a very strong effort, especially for musicians still in their early 20s. --Genevieve Williams

5.0 out of 5 stars Legend March 15, 2000
By ty7777
Format:Audio CD
This band's guitarist Mato Nanji is going to be a legend and he is one of the most talented guitarists alive I think according to this album and the appearance I saw on Conan O'brian. On this album, especially on Holdin' out, he haunts me with the sounds of Hendrix and he brings to mind Stevie Ray Vaughan, only he represents both of their sounds with an all together new talent and smooth style. There is a great mix between upbeat and melancholy tracks, this is as straightforward blues as you can find these days. I loved the entire album. Anyone who likes hendrix, clapton, Vaughan, and the blues will be pleasantly surprised. Mato -the lead and only guitarist even combines great elements of acoustic guitar overlapping on different songs. This is the best album I've heard period from front to back in months. This is just one great blues album. It is about an hour of great music. Indigenous deserves far more popularity, and you should remember Mato Nanji's name, because you'll definitely hear it again.

5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF MY FAVOURITE CD'S April 10, 2003
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Having read about MATO NANJI I bought this CD on hear say. Well
what a positive surprise. This has turned into one of mine and more surprisingly my wife's ( we don't often see eye to eye on musik ) favourite CD's. Everyone I've played this for has fallen
in love with this CD. My niece at 18 loves it, my wifes best friend at 55 loves it and even the disco babes in the office love it. This crosses many boundaries of musical tastes and satisfies just about everyones tastes. This is even more surprising as it is not a compromise CD in any way, it makes a statement about the ability of these talented native indians as song writers, musicians and entertainers. INDIGENOUS may be one of the most important bands to emerge out of the USA in many years. The musik leans towards the blues ( SRV and HENDRIX ) but has enough depth to [take] in even non BLUES lovers. Every song is a killer and the musik will grow on you for month on end.
A must have CD for any musik fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worthy of comparison to the greats July 11, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I agree with the general vote here that this is a great record - without doubt the best I've heard this year, in fact in many years. I am and have been a huge fan of Jimi and Stevie Ray, I saw both a lot - Hendrix when I was quite young, and SRV a ton of times in the 80s. The guitarist for Indigenous, Mato Nanji, is the first I've seen to be of that special top level quality - where he seems to be channeling spirits through his guitar as compared to just playing it. The man plays with soul, it is very pure and refreshing to hear - unlike so many of these "young prodigy" guiatrists major record labels keep throwing at us. Mato Nanji is a guitarist, and Indigenous a band, for the ages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best NDN Band Ever! Indigeous Rules! February 3, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Anyone who does not like this album is crazy! Go out and purchase this album quick. "Things We Do" is an amazing album to listen to. The song "Things We Do" is the best song I ever heard. It also won for best music video at the AMERICAN INDIAN FILM FESTIVAL in San Francisco in 1998. I first heard of this band in 1998 and started listening to their music and haven't stopped since. I never even liked Blues/Rock, until I heard the first off of this album. Mato's magical fingers, take you beyond heaven, Pte's bass playing takes you to a whole nother lever, beyond the basic bass chords, Wanbdi play's those drums as if there were no tomorrow, and Horse pounds his percussions so fast, so good , it ain't funny. The best time to hear this band is live. So, if you have the chance to hear them live. Please don't pass it up. Or you'll be missing a good thing. And will regret it for the rest of your life. Check out their website: [] Indigenous Rules Baby!

5.0 out of 5 stars I can't stop listening! May 3, 2000
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This was a case of recommendations gone right. I read through the many reviews for this CD and got the feeling that many people were affected by it, and for good reason! They all cite the SRV influence, which is the most obvious aspect, but there is much more to this group than being Stevie Ray knock-offs. The slower numbers are affecting and soulful, and that combined with the energetic uptempo numbers make for a very well-rounded release. I reserve the five star rating for CDs which I can listen to without having to skip over any tracks, and this one falls within that category, even after several months of listening. I've bought about 30 discs since this one, but it still stays in the rotation of my changers at home, at work, and in the truck. I've already ordered their next release and am waiting anxiously for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Indian voice is being heard December 1, 1999
Format:Audio CD
I have only been a fan for a short time, these fabulous foursome have caught my ear. I've read alot of reviews about these four and have seen alot of comparison to Hendrix and Vaughn. I'm and older rocker and blues fan and there is, in my opinion no comparison to the latter two. This group has a sound of their own.I got to see them in Tulsa,Ok and they rocked the house. This is the best group of the century, but of course I am Native American Indian so I am totally biased. I still think they the best in this millenium. Thanks Indigenous.....Hope to see you again real soon

5.0 out of 5 stars Things We Do December 11, 1999
Format:Audio CD
In short they are awesome. My husband and I got turned on to this young group by some friends, bought their CD, and am surprised we have not worn it out yet. Mato definitely has a strong influence from the late great Stevie Ray, but he puts his own spin on the blues, making listening to them a great musical experience. His voice is unique, and is not easily compared to any other performer. His siblings are a great backup to this fine young musician, and are talented in their own right. Recently saw them live in Tulsa, and was on my feet for the entire show, cannot wait for their return to T-town. This Cd is a must for all blues and rock lovers, you will not be disappointed by your choice.
