World fusion music is a subcategory of world music, blending musical traditions from around the world, and possibly mixing them with modern music such as jazz or rock. The term was coined in 1978 by Matthew Montfort, leader of Ancient Future, and has since become a standard term used in the music industry. In his book, "Ancient Traditions -- Future Possibilities," Montfort defines world fusion music as "music that combines ideas from many of the earth's traditions." As such, it is more of a process than a genre. Read more on Last.fm.
