Ancient-Future – Yearning for the Wind


Yearning for the Wind is a poignant piece by Ancient Future based on Indian raga. Set in a nine beat rhythmic cycle, it provides a sublime setting for this duet with Matthew Montfort on scalloped fretboard guitar and Indian tabla virtuoso Vishal Nagar, who is considered one of the most gifted tabla players of his generation.

Recorded in December 2013, this evocative piece was produced for the ‘Archive of Future Ancient Recordings,’ Ancient Future’s ambitious ongoing recording project. To finance A.F.A.R., Ancient-Future.Com Records provides financial supporters access to select files from Ancient Future’s archives of alternate takes, live concerts, radio performances and new studio recordings as they are created. To promote the ‘Archive of Future Ancient Recordings,’ an enhanced E-CD of ‘Yearning for the Wind’ with the audio, HD video, and digital liner notes will be available at online stores such as Ancient-Future.Com and starting June 17, 2014.
