Just wanted to announce a new blog I've started about tiki music/exotica. It's called
"Exoticology 101" and its focus is studying the creativity of classic tiki musicians (Les Baxter, Martin Denny, Arthur Lyman, Robert Drasnin, and others of that era) through the lens of European classical music and the various indigenous cultures they drew upon.

Some other topics include:

I'm just starting out, and some of the earliest blog posts I actually adapted from posts I made here on TC.

Surf on over to the Exoticology 101 blog: http://randywong.net/exotica and bring me a falernum mai tai, will ya?

Excellent work Mr. Wong. Excellent! I love the comparisons of classical heavy hitters and exotica musicians.

Hope it keeps expanding!
