Ritual of the Savage (Le Sacre du Sauvage) is a musical album by Les Baxter in 1952. The album is best-known for its track "Quiet Village."

The album would become the cornerstone of exotica. This album featured lush orchestral arrangements along with tribal rhythms and offered such classics as "Quiet Village", "Jungle River Boat", "Love Dance", and "Stone God." Ritual is the seminal Exotica record, influencing all that came after it.

It was released on Capitol Records, release number T288. With artwork by William George.
