Ethnic electronica (also known as ethnotronica, ethno electronica or ethno techno) combines elements of electronic and world music and was developed in the 1990s. The term ethnic electronica appears in music zines, in online music-related forums and blogs. The term "ethno-techno" was first seen with the release of Ethno-Techno: Sonic Anthropology Vol 1 Wax Trax! in 1994.[citation needed]

Notable acts of ethnic electronica include Bryn Jones with his project Muslimgauze (before his death in 1999), the artists of Asian underground movement (Asian Dub Foundation, Joi, State of Bengal, Transglobal Underground, Natacha Atlas), Mozani Ramzan,[1] Shpongle, Ott, Zavoloka, Banco de Gaia, AeTopus, Zingaia, Afro-Celt Sound System, Métisse, A Tribe Called Red, early work by Yat-Kha (with Ivan Sokolovsky[2])
