Ancient Futures is the first ever multi-media production of African Classical Music, featuring the Kora maestro, Tunde Jegede, the legendary Riti player, Juldeh Camara and the gifted young singer and guitarist, Sona Jobarteh, with live visuals by the visual artist and filmmaker, Sunara Begum.

This unique production brings together the beautiful acoustic music from the desert nomads and Royal Court Music traditions of Mali by some of the finest ambassadors of African Classical Music. These musicians bring the sweet delicate meditative music of the Kora, the gentle enchanting rhythms of the small Udu drum together with the haunting melodies of the African violin. Drawn from antiquity, their meditative music is transcendental and has a timeless quality which is also caught in the striking projected images, evoking a captivating sense of its culture and history, whilst exploring these ancient traditions in a new light.
