Tribal beats with dubstep/electronic/world/instrumental...recommendations?!

Hey! So I am currently living in India, sometimes actually in tribal villages, and I love the tribal beats and rhythms. It can be really quite spooky, trance inducing and hypnotic stuff. Especially when they sing/chant mantras (songs which apparently are capable of inducing spiritual transformation)...annnnnnnnyway
I adore all the Shackleton stuff which gets into this kind of dark looped sound quite often and other artists which come into my head recently are: oOoOO (especially the Mumbai track!), afro-beat stuff which is more upbeat and 'fun' like Endgames - Ecstacy (Jam City Refix), The Very Best, M.I.A's beats (I actually love the new album!), metal stuff like Sepultura and Soulfly which often use amazing tribal drums and actual tribal recordings, T++, Graceland kinda hits the spot for me too (guilty pleasure!), Water Borders - Akko (Petals Remix), Demdike Stare (wow!) and then finally I have recently tried African Head Charge - which didn't really do it for me.
Thanks a million in advance :) And sorry for the long list

Why would you want fake western tribal beats
when you're living in a tribal area? I'd make the most of it bro and forget about the internet and other western distractions for a bit. Listen to the sounds around you, fuck the ipod off..

It's just that I would love to record the sounds and songs around me but it's quite difficult really. Plus I don't really have the time to mix them together and make it something worthwhile. Let other people do the hard work for me was the approach ;)
Thanks to all
