Music at the Mine Presents Ancient Future
Ancient Future returns to perform at the Music at the Mine series at the Kentucky Mine Amphitheater for the first time since 2000. This uptempo program features world guitar pioneer Matthew Montfort, virtuoso keyboardist Doug McKeehan, and international percussion phenomenon Abbos Kosimov, an ambassador of Uzbek culture who is known for throwing his drums in the air during his awe inspiring solos. Abbos Kosimov is a master of the doyra (frame drum with metal rings), which he has taken to unprecedented new heights through his work with Indian tabla master Zakir Hussain. When asked about doyra, Abbos said: "Uzbek culture and national identity is deeply rooted in its music and dance traditions. Dorya is my life and I cannot live without it." This dance of the doyra is augmented melodically and harmonically by Matthew Montfort and Doug McKeehan, producing energetic music that is exotic, and familiar all at the same time.
