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.
Ancient Future has released seven full length studio CDs selling over 150,000 units. Ancient Future is also featured on samplers selling millions of units on labels such as Putumayo and Narada.
