President-Elect Sanders Proposes US Musical Ambassador to the United Nations
WASHINGTON (Ancient Future Press). President-elect Bernie Sanders today announced his intention to create a new cabinet-level position: United States Musical Ambassador to the United Nations.
A Sanders Transition Team internal memo marked as "for discussion purposes only" has been obtained which states that the idea came to Sanders after hearing some music by the band Ancient Future, the first and longest running musical organization dedicated exclusively to the mission of creating world fusion music. The memo states that in cases of international conflict, it will be the duty of the USMAUN to employ Ancient Future to facilitate jam sessions between musicians from the countries involved.
The Senate confirmation process can begin when Congress convenes on Jan. 3, two weeks before Sander’s inauguration on Jan. 20, 2017. Due to the new Green/Democratic coalition majority in the Senate that was swept in on Sanders's coattails, it is widely believed that Ancient Future's upcoming Feb. 11 anniversary concert is likely to become a celebration of more than just the band's 38 years of cross-cultural collaboration.
Ancient Future Performs at Trinity Chapel on 38th Anniversary of the First Ancient Future Concert
Featuring World Guitar Pioneer Matthew Montfort, Tabla Virtuoso Vishal Nagar, and Pianist/Santurist Mariah Parker
Exactly 38 years after their first concert on Feb. 11, 1979, at the Sleeping Lady Cafe in Fairfax, California, Ancient Future will perform in Berkeley as part of the Trinity Chamber Concert Series. Blending ancient world music traditions from fiery flamenco to resonant raga with the contemporary colors of jazz and rock, this variation of the world fusion music group features world guitar pioneer Matthew Montfort, renowned Indian tabla virtuoso Vishal Nagar, and composer/pianist/santurist Mariah Parker performing new music and favorites from the band's eight ground-breaking recordings.
With President-elect Sanders's proposed new duties for Ancient Future at the United Nations, reservations are strongly encouraged for those who want to be part of what could be an historic celebration for world fusion music.

Alt-Left Releases on Ancient-Future.Com Records
Berning for the Win
Berning for the Win by Ancient Future (Ancient-Future.Com AF-90352).
Berning for the Win is the first audio/video release in Alt-Left Ancient Future history, and is thought to have played a part in Bernie's narrow victory in the primary after a recount in 34 states, and his landslide victory in the general election.
The Archive of Future Ancient Recordings
The Archive of Future Ancient Recordings by Ancient Future (Ancient-Future.Com AF-2030).
Kent Jones reports on A.F.A.R. on the Rachel Maddow Show on X.N.N.B.C. in a parallel universe.
