Water from an Ancient Well is a jazz album by South African pianist Abdullah Ibrahim that was first released in 1986. The album was also included in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.

Water From An Ancient Well features the pianist/composer with a very strong septet. Such superior musicians as tenor saxophonist Ricky Ford, altoist Carlos Ward,and baritonist Charles Davis, are heard at their most creative and emotional on these eight Ibrahim originals. Many of the melodies (particularly "Mandela," "Song for Sathima," "Water From an Ancient Well," and the beautiful "The Wedding") are among Ibrahim's finest compositions
