Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
You don't have to leave this continent to immerse yourself in truly transportive world music -- as borne out by this South Dakota-based band made up of four siblings from the Sioux tribe. Produced by Doyle Bramhall, who knows a thing or two about the six-string, CIRCLE focuses squarely on the guitar work of Mato Nanji. His seamless fusion of traditional sounds and 21st-century blues check "Little Time" incorporates some surprising elements, such as the pedal steel-driven closer "The Moon Is Shining." Nanji can also work wonders without using his fingers. His voice, resonant and mellifluous à la Hootie front man Darius Rucker, goes a long way toward spreading the ...

While somewhat light on the polyrhythms that propelled earlier outings such as WHAT WE DO, this 11-cut collection spills over with enough electrifying musicianship to sate any lover of the modern blues.

    What are the 5 star people thinking???!!!

    If there were 1 1/2 stars that would be more appropriate. I saw Indigenous on PBS and I thought I'd buy their latest disk. The disk is not even close to what the band is like during live performance. Mato is better live than he is in the studio with over dub! Wake up dude, that's a guitar in your hands, play the thing will ya?! Based on this CD, Indigenous needs a day job cause this gig is over.

    WOW...what a great rockin' record!

    Just got the CD today after hearing the song Little Time, where have I been? This has to be the best record made in a long time, I love the feel the record has with the mixture or totally rocking songs and the mellower ones (realy like the pedal steel). Mato has some of the best solos, and the band sounds soo good. You have a new fan, and Mato is just plain ol' rockin' on this CD! Mick Jagger if you still can't get no satisifaction, buy this CD!

    Indigenous Rocks!

    This album is one of the best. The band's talent shines through and effects a part of you that you never knew of. 'The Moon is Shining' is brilliant and 'Evolution Revolution' are such beautiful songs. I've fallen in love with this c.d. And believe me, it doesn't take that long. The band is so good live. I caught them last night at the House of Blues in Los Angeles. It brought tears to my eyes! Buy the C.D. It's totally worth it. This is a great investment. And please if you get the chance, go see the band and you'll understand.

    A Great CD

    Circle is a great CD from a Great Band featuring a the best living electric guitarist on the planet - Mato Nanji - a talent truely in league with Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan and a young Eric Clapton. Excellent songs and a flawless sounding recording. I have not been this excited or moved by a record in many years.
