The Emerald Forest
Junior Homrich and Brian Gascoigne

Review

"Ethnic" scores are also good when you are setting an adventure in a region that has a similar culture. For example, if you were setting an adventure in a jungle you would use "jungle" music such as on The Emerald Forest. I would be careful with this score, because it is a strange blend of "synth" and percussion. While straight percussion would make it very suitable for jungle music, the "synth" makes it a little strange. Try and listen to the score first before making your own decision.
