Tribal Style Overview
Tribal Music Description
Tribal as a tag on Discogs is generally used in combination with other styles, like Techno, or Trance, to indicate a "primitive" aesthetic. It may emphasize straightforward, monotonous rhythms dominated by toms, bongos, and shakers, and may be devoid of build-ups, fills, hi-hats, claps, or other sounds that offset or distract from the main beat. However, there are always exceptions.
Note that there is a specific tag for 'tribal house', which one hopes users will gradually amend house releases tagged as 'tribal' to over time.
