Ethnoambient is an improper way to talk about ethnic-ambient, or tribal ambient, which is a kind of music from the 1980s that draws heavily from acoustic ethnic music - both in musical structure and instrumentation, electric world music, and combines those influences with ambient music related to texture, technological manipulations, and field recordings. Ethnic-ambient is related in spirit to techno tribal, and especially to "Fourth World" music and "ambient" music, launched in the late 1970s by Jon Hassell and Brian Eno, respectively. Practitioners of ethnic-ambient music include Bill Laswell, Steve Roach, Robert Rich, Rapoon, Muslimgauze, Jorge Reyes, Gayan Uttejak, Vidna Obmana, Ian Naismith, Jah Wobble, Max Corbacho, Frore and Paul Haslinger.
