Ancien is a world fusion jam band that blends sounds of Balkan, Klezmer, Gypsy, Medieval, Sephardic, Flamenco, Blues, Turkish folk, Middle Eastern and Classical music traditions. The band members come from a variety of musical disciplines and perform on instruments such as the violin, classical guitar, double bass, accordion, recorder, and kemenche (Persian spike fiddle). Middle Eastern percussion (like the darbuka, doumbek, and riq) and unique improvisations provide the driving force of Ancien's rhythm and style.
