AllMusic Review by

On this four-disc, three-hours-plus anthology of "spiritual, ritual and meditative music", the traditions of more than 40 different ethnic groups are sampled. Because the musical selections are determined more by aesthetics than by geography, the four discs (broken down into songs/chants, ensembles, percussion and melody instruments) move from continent to continent, resulting in fascinating juxtapositions from nations as diverse as Burkina Faso, Tibet and Java.
