Ancient Future Benefit Concert

Jul 26, 2010

The Ancient Future Quintet, one of the band’s many configurations.

Ancient Future is a band, I think. They’ve been playing world fusion music, a term bandleader Matthew Montfort claims he coined, since 1978. Their upcoming date at the incredibly atmospheric Folly Bowl (an amphitheater in the yard of a private Altadena home) is but one stop on their first Southern California tour since 1998. The occasion? A benefit for Friends of Swanirvar Los Angeles. Swanirvar is an NGO working in rural West Bengal on holistic village development. Doors open at 7; guests are encouraged to bring their own (*cough*) light refreshments.
