Return To Innocence by Enigma

I have been looking for this for years, I’ve tried searching just the Native-American-sounding chants on Google and never found it until Shazam. (God Bless Shazam) “Return to Innocence” is the 1994 song created by Enigma as part of their second album, The Cross of Changes. This song’s presence spanned the globe reaching number one in over 10 countries.

The majority of this popular song’s listeners (like me) thought the song was a Native American chant, I know I mistakenly did, but the aboriginal Taiwanese tune was actually sampled from the “Jubilant Drinking Song” without Kuo Ying-nan and Kuo Hsiu-chu‘s permission. Whoops. The drum beat of the song was also a sample, this time with permission from the Led Zeppelin song “When the Levee Breaks.”
