It makes sense — Exotica rose to prominence during the same era as tiki bars, and certainly aimed to capture the same mysterious and idealized view of the tropics. Most Exotica is a perfect fit for a tiki bar. The thing Sons Of Tiki - Seven Changes (Vinyl) — Exotica may not have actually Sons Of Tiki - Seven Changes (Vinyl) played very often in tiki bars.
Exotica was born from live performances in bars in Hawaii, played to an audience of vacationing mainlanders who probably frequented stateside tiki bars especially upon their returnbut the tiki bars found outside of Hawaii may not have actually played much Exotica. Much as midcentury tiki bars were an idealized view of Polynesia, our modern view of tiki bars has become idealized into a perfect vision of something that probably was a bit more fractured.
Sons Of Tiki - Seven Changes (Vinyl) music in a tiki bar should be like a great film score — creating a mood and giving subtle cues as to the character of the joint, while not calling constant attention to itself.
It should be quiet enough that conversations can be had — tiki bars are not throbbing discotheques. This class of music has its own standards, which were recorded over and over again, to an amazing extent. If you want to track down music on your own, you can go down to your corner thrift store and pick up all kinds of crazy albums for about a buck a pop. To my ear, a good set of these sorts of songs provides the absolute best backdrop. I adore Exotica, and I prefer it for just general listening, but I find traditional stuff just a wee touch better for tiki bar mood-setting.
Exotica is my first choice to be piped into outdoor jungle-y patio areas, though. Later in the evening, as the crowd loosens up, sometimes it becomes more appropriate and natural to go up-tempo. Equivel is a great Exotica wee-hours sound. It becomes less of an issue later in the evening, as the crowd has already gotten into the mood of the place. Selector Lopaka has sneakily segued an evening of great Hawaiian and Exotica classics into reggae without my noticing.
So, there is an indisputable and tangled-up-tight connection between surf music and tiki. Surf music grew out of the burgeoning surfing teen community in Southern California in the s, and tikis are an iconic image that was all over the place for them most notably as good-luck charm necklaces.
This is a group that skewed a bit younger than the folks typically in attendance at tiki bars back in the old days, and to my ears it sounds like a mismatch to be sitting in a mellow tiki bar listening to surf. Maybe the Dumb Angel guys can paint it all in for me and smooth over my cognitive dissonance. They actually do tie together Exotica and surf in their latest issue, All Summer Sons Of Tiki - Seven Changes (Vinyl), but not enough to make it sound natural to me in a cozy, dimly lit tiki bar.
Surf music to me conjures up images of either bright sunshine or gritty, boisterous parties — things I love, just not things I love in a tiki bar.
So, there you go. There are lots of folks more knowledgable than I in this arena, and I welcome hearing their input on the topic. Like Like. I rarely play Exotica in my bar.
