Ancient Future 'World Without Walls' Reunion Concert

Ancient Future’s 40th season celebration: ‘World Without Walls’ exact lineup @ SFIAF

In celebration of Ancient Future‘s 40th season of world fusion music, the exact lineup of Ancient Future that performed on the band’s influential World Without Walls and Asian Fusion recordings will reunite to perform at the San Francisco International Arts Festival.

The reunion show features the historic lineup of Matthew Montfort on scalloped fretboard guitar, Jim Hurley on violin, Doug McKeehan on keyboards, and Ian Dogole on percussion, plus Kash Killion on bass. Their uptempo virtuoso world fusion music is an exhilarating mix of jazz improvisation with the exciting rhythms, exotic sounds, and enchanting melodies of world music.

This lineup of Ancient Future played over a hundred concerts together from 1988 to 1995. In 2011, they reunited for the first time in 15 years to perform at venues such as Yoshi’s San Francisco.

In honor of the reunion concerts, World Without Walls was released digitally by Capitol Records for the first time ever at major digital retailers such as iTunes. Twenty two years after its initial release in 1990, broadcasters worldwide voted the record as one of the top 5 world music releases of 2012. This show at the San Francisco International Arts Festival will be their fifth reunion concert.
