Exotica Music
Exotica music is a form of tropical-jazz, pioneered in the 1950s to sound exotic, atmospheric, and occasionally savage, but still wonderfully listenable to a westerner's ear. Exotica is the perfect music to complement a home tiki bar. It ranges from mellow to quite-swinging, but always has an aluring sound.

All music here is avaliable on CD through Amazon.com.

Mondo Exotica: Ultra Lounge 1
Our best seller; a must-have compliation of Exotica music ranging from wild, to mellow, to savage and swinging. If you're new to Exotica this is the perfect first album. A wonderful cross-secton of the Exotica genre.

Quiet Village/Enchanted Sea
Quiet Village/Enchanted Sea
Martin Denny is often considered the father of Exotica, and here he is at his best. Atmospheric and lush with a blend of modern Jazz, and don't forget the bird calls! Martin Denny's rendition of 'Quiet Village' became a smash-hit and spawned the Exotica craze.

Voodoo
Voodoo
An amazingly moody exotic soundtrack. Savage & haunting wordless vocals accent an eighteen piece band. Recorded in 1959, this album went overlooked for decades before being re-discovered by modern-day tikihpiles, and now released on CD. This Truly a gem.

Eden's Island
Eden's Island
Our favorite Exotica album with a sound all it's own. Eden Ahbez's concept album of the love and life on a lost island takes the listener from moody instrumentals, to swinging dance pieces, to exotic storytelling, and a few bouncy, novelty cuts. A great re-release, and a must-have!
