Tribal Groove offers rich, synth-textured dreamscapes bolstered by tribal drums, native instrumentation, and percussion. The mix sounds great, the production clean and punchy, and each track is a unique worldbeat concoction with dashes of new age and Euro-groove pulsation thrown in for good measure. Several continents with indigenous cultures are duly represented: North America, Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and Australia. Track lengths are kept on the short side, which helps to keep the momentum moving forward with drive. A mesmerizing, genre-bending feast for multicultural gourmands.
