A member of the Nakota Nation, Mato Nanji picked up his love of the blues and learned guitar being influenced by The Eagles, Carlos Santana and Stevie Ray Vaughan. It's that musical connection that forms Indigenous touring and recording over a ten year period. He has joined the elite group of artists touring "Experience Hendrix" in 2010. Mato & Indigenous is a unique voice of blues rock.
