Tribali’s album Festa has been rated the seventh best instrumental new age and world music album of the year by a top website specialising in the genre.

“It’s an amazing feat of magic in the way they cross blend influences ranging from world music, new age, folk, reggae, rock, and jazz,” blogger John Olsen writes in NewAgeMusicWorld.com.

He describes the album as having a level of energy “off the chart” and of using a broad variety of instruments, incorporating the didgeridoo, electric sitar and several others with more traditional ones like guitars, keyboards and violin.

“Placing an emphasis on cultural multiplicity in every project, the ethnic tradition of international Maltese band Tribali is a great way to revel any time, any place, any day,” says Mr Olsen.

The album is a collection of classic Tribali cuts from their earlier albums, previously only available in Malta.

Although Festa was released digitally worldwide, including on iTunes, Amazon and HMV, only a limited number of physical copies were produced. These were distributed locally and abroad.

The band’s album The Traveller has been awarded Best Album of 2012 at this year’s Malta Music Awards. They have won this award twice in a row.
