I am trying to find some really good tribal kind of music. Kind of like polenesian drums or island drum music. There is a ton of techno and drum and base but I am looking for some real tribal kind of drums. I know there are many albums with digeridoo(sp?) but I am looking for something that is like a drum circle or shaman kind of stuff. Any recomendations? ThanksAvatar

There are lots, though not all are "island" sounding:- The Kodo Drummers (Japanese)- Mickey Hart's Planet Drum (Cross Cultural)- The Diga Rhythm Band (Cross Cultural)- Nexus (Cross Cultural)- Babatunde Olatunji (African)- Zakir Hussein (Indian Tabla)Of those, Babatunde and the Kodo are probably the most "tribal" sounding.

Hi there - good topic. I'd like to hear some more specific responses to this one. We've talked about music many times before, but rarely come up with actual recommendations for this genre.https://www.homeofpoi.com/ubb/Forum1/HTML/000171.htmlhttps://www.homeofpoi.com/ubb/Forum1/HTML/000103.htmlhttps://www.homeofpoi.com/ubb/Forum7/HTML/000025.htmlthere's some light reading for you!
