Goa trance is a style of electronic dance music that started in the early 1990s in Goa, India. It typically has droning basslines similar to techno minimalism and 21st century psychedelic trance (psytrance). Psychedelic trance grew out of Goa trance.
It is characterized by its “high energy” and “ecstatic” feel, which can be heard in tracks with heavy basslines, rolling offbeat hi-hats, spacy synths and arpeggiated melodies. Goa trance has a strong tribal influence and often features chanting or singing vocals as well as ethnic instruments.
