OK, I discovered at Baxdog's party that many many musical styles could be construed as Tiki (and just as many most certainly can't!).

So, I ask you all, what is the sound of Tiki? Respond with your opinions, names, styles, et peter cetera.

What is the sound of Tiki?

It is the sound of contemplative silence.

I'd say, Exotica, Lounge, Surf, Beach sounds, waterfalls, rain, birdcalls, Buffett, Traditional Hawaiian music, some modern ... whoops? Did I say Buffett? Sorry, that one doesn't count.

Thor,
In Exotica the big Three are Arty, Marty and Les.

Aurthur Lyman (Try Hawaiian Sunset)
Martin Denny (Try Quiet Village)
Les Baxter (Ritual of the Savage or Tamboo)

I think you can listen to some of it on TraderPups website.
Mahalo,
Al

The sound of an ax striking wood while chips whistle by your ears. The ocean and seabirds gently whispering in the background. Bamboo windchimes tinkling in the tradewinds. Ukes and bongos being played in the shade of a mangrove. Well, I guess you cant really here a shady mangrove, but it helps the setting. As for Music, I agree with what everybody else mentioned and will add a few: Eden Ahbez, Don Tiki, APE, Tiki Tones, Aquavelvets, The Shadows, Gabby Pahinui, The list could go on but I will stop here.

It's the splashing sound of rum being poured over ice cubes...the squeeze of the lime...it's the sound of condensation slipping down the side of your favorite Tiki mug or glass and then splashing the counter as you lift it to your lips to sip...and that first scent of the exotic just prior to the sip...the sounds of Tiki are many. ummm...makes me kinda thirsty. Think I'll go mix one up.

The sound of the bamboo beaded curtain rustling as you enter the tiki bar.

Glad to see that surf was mentioned. I would like to add one PHENOMENAL group that is all too often overlooked. That group is Tipsy. Their first album, "Trip TeaseL The Seductive Sounds of Tipsy," is composed almost exclusively of samples of old lounge records. The result is a half lounge, half down tempo electronica cocktail that is it at once retro yet timeless. This is an album that I have had since it first came out in 1996 and I have NEVER gotten tired of it. There have even been entire days when I have listened to nothing but this album. There have been other attempts to fuse the sounds of vintage lounge and modern electronica (such as Dimitri from Paris's "Sacre Francais," Luke Vibert & BJ Cole's "Stop the Panic," and the two volume s of Electro-Lounge from the Right Stuff) but Tipsy's debut album is infinitely more enjoyable than all of them. Even if you hate electronica, you will love this album!

One final thing, this isn't really specifically tiki as it is more just generally lounge, but it fits right in with a tiki bar, Vegas lounge, or a space station orbitting the earth.

When the TIKI speaks
And no one is there
Can you hear them?

The Tiki that speaks first and laughs last
Likes his own jokes

Two TIKIS in your palm
Is not as fun as
One TIKI in your bush

To make one kind of Tiki sound is stale
Add shuffle and many people can be happy.

I'll second Tipsy. They have been on my broadcast from day 1. I can't get rid of it. It's too good. I would add a few more in that vein like Groove Armada, but nothing works like Tipsy. Do they perform live? I'd love to have them at Hukilau some year.

Ah yes Tipsy, Good Call. I did a flash animation for a school project and used there tune Mr. Excitement for the sound track. The project had an outerspace bar setting, a thirsty three-eyed beatnik alien, and a Bartender Brain mixing up weird intoxica. All the crazy stuff that fills my warped melon when I listen to "trip tease"
The only thing missing was a titanium rocket tiki. Definately good lounging tunes with a twist electronic psychedelia.
