Re-issued with 64-Bit Tuned Harmonic Mastering to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the first Ancient Future concert 2/11/1979, the seventh Ancient Future recording features nineteen top masters of Indian, Nepalese, African, Cuban, Celtic, Arabic, Palestinian, Jewish, Indonesian, Chinese, Eastern European and American music traditions. Each cut on the CD features a different version of the band. Since the term "world fusion music" was coined at the band’s inception in 1978, Ancient Future has evolved from a quartet into a large musical family of world fusion music ensembles led by scalloped fretboard guitarist Matthew Montfort.
