Aloha Amigos!
I'm writing this from "La Gran Tenochtitlan" A.K.A. Mexico City. I'm doing archaeological Tiki research "in situ" and pretend to uncover the Mexican Tiki mysteries. I plan to organize the information that is already posted in Tiki Central about Mexico here as an index and add my discoveries. Please help!
This picture below is from "ACAPULCO" Crescent books N.Y. 1978

The footnote: Discotheque.
It could be the Aku Tiki (which I doubt) the Bali Hai, the Kon-Tiki in Zihuatanejo
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=29876&forum=16&1 or a "new" Tiki discotheque we don't know about.
I need to know!
Mahalo!
Z

No date.

Hola Virani, I am sure you did. Can you post your discoveries here please? Last Sunday I was in la Lagunilla, ( Mexico City main flea market) looking for old postcards and a woman in one of the stands asked me what kind of stuff I was looking for, so I told her, and she replied to me that a french guy used to go there looking for the same things but that he left Mexico recently... I think he could been your brother. Am I right? Urban archaeologists of all lands unite!

Tropical Bewitch

Sounds like a mix between Danzon (Cuban dance music) and Exotica, with birds, waterfalls, weird screams etc... Witchdoctor's music

Cool! That cover would be good for a full page spread, don't you think so, Zeta!? Love the picture of the stereo on the back as modern contrast, too, it reminds me of the liner notes of a Thurston Knudson LP:

"The distant peaks of the Himalayas brought within vision of your living room !"

Yeah, the cool thing about the embrujo tropical record is that the art and the music are the Mexican original reinterpretation of exotica... exotica reloaded.
