Blending the rhythms and harmonies of the Arabian Peninsula with contemporary jazz and rock to produce an irresistible and exhilarating fusion
This program by the pioneering world music group Ancient Future blends the rhythms and harmonies of the Arabian Peninsula with contemporary jazz and rock, producing an irresistible and exhilarating fusion that captures the essence of pilgrimage, cultural exchange, exploration and migration.
These multifaceted artists create an innovative musical experience that guides listeners on a hypnotic voyage through time and place.
The concert will include music from Ancient Future’s broad repertoire including music from the band’s major label releases such as World Without Walls (voted in the top 5 world music picks by broadcasters worldwide upon its 2012 reissue on Capitol Records) and current releases on Ancient-Future.Com Records such as Planet Passion and the Archive of Future Ancient Recordings.
Ancient Future is the first and longest running musical organization dedicated exclusively to the mission of creating world fusion music. The term was coined by bandleader Matthew Montfort in 1978 to describe Ancient Future’s unusual blend of musical traditions from around the world.
BILLBOARD calls the group “trendsetters” for their early contributions to the movement, which seeks to show how people from different cultures can grow by learning from each other.
