The Planet Jammin' World Fusion Music Documentary is named after a collaborative concert project of the internationally acclaimed ensemble, Ancient Future. BILLBOARD calls the group "trendsetters" for contributing to the emerging movement for "world fusion music," a term Ancient Future coined at its inception in 1978 for music that blends musical ideas from many different cultures. Ancient Future is the world's first and longest running band dedicated exclusively to the creation of world fusion music. Ancient Future has expanded its musical vision through collaborations with traditional musicians from around the world who are now an integral part of what is today more than just a band. Ancient Future has grown to become a large chamber ensemble of world music masters with many smaller ensembles within it, enabling Ancient Future to realize its core mission of creating world fusion music. Many configurations are available, from a small number of the musicians on up to large ensembles. The video documents the history of the world music movement and shows archival clips of many of the variations of Ancient Future. Includes information on the music scene surrounding the Grateful Dead and the Ali Akbar College of music from which the band was formed.
