The Best of Ellipsis Arts: Global Meditation culls the highlights from the box set Global Meditation: Authentic Music From Meditative Traditions of the World, a collection flawlessly capturing the worldbeat that appeals to new age music fans. This is music that emphasizes texture and spirituality, not percolating party rhythms, and the result is evocative and endlessly intriguing. For anyone who is curious but unwilling (or unable) to invest in the full box, this single-disc collection featuring cuts by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and the Master Musicians of Jajouka, among many others, is a terrific sampler.
