AllMusic Review by

Tribal Trance's music is best described by their name. Ethereal, eerie, strangely moody and extremely organic, this band's oeuvre encourages a meditative (or at least pensive) state of mind. The band describes it as "music for the mind, body and soul." On their third release, Tribal Trance strive to maintain a spiritual and therapeutic edge. All of the tracks are contemplative, and each celebrates life and God. The idea here is to use music as a conduit between the inner self and nature, leading to a closer proximity to the Creator.

Pulling largely from the indigenous music of the Australian aborigines, the droning of the didgeridoo, and the beating of native drums are heavily featured. Highlights include the frolicsome "The Celtic One," the sitar-inflected "Bharat," and "Ancient Lines," which uses flute to propel the music into a kind of ecstatic wonderland.
