Did Ancient Future Invent “World Fusion?”

As you can imagine, especially as we start our season called “Connecting the Dots,” All Around This World is a big fan of music called “world fusion.” What’s that? The band Ancient Future claims to have originated the term when they formed in 1978 with the goal of combining jazz and rock with “African, Balinese, Indian, Middle Eastern and South American percussion, the rich harmonies of Europe, and the beautiful melodies of Asia.” Whether or not they came up with the term, they certainly make dreamy music.
