Popular music compels, it entertains, and it has the power toattract and move audiences. With that in mind, the editors ofIndigenous Pop showcase the contributions of American Indianmusicians to popular forms of music, including jazz, blues,country-western, rock and roll, reggae, punk, and hip hop. Arrangedboth chronologically and according to popular generic forms, the bookgives Indigenous pop a broad new meaning. In addition to examining thetransitive influences of popular music on Indigenous expressive forms,the contributors also show ways that various genres have been shaped bywhat some have called the "Red Roots" of American-originatedmusical styles.
