AllMusic Review by

While this platter won't get things moving on the dance floor, it may literally cure what ails you. With everything from a North Indian song for depression and fatigue to a Panamanian shamanic chant for a pregnant woman with fever, these tracks are a vital exploration of the link between the physical and spiritual worlds. A detailed book accompanies the single disc in the set, and the field recordings have sharp definition. Be advised, this music offers more of an educational, ethnographic experience than pure listening fun.
