I just ordered a few of those Roudoudou CD's from Amazon.fr -- not exactly sure how much it cost me, but thank God the site is similar enough to the .com version that I was able to feel my way through it

For those so inclined, I've assembled a pretty decent record collection, nearly comprising the entire 'canon' of Exotica. You can see some of the records and hear even more of them at the following links:


I've been seeking out 'newer' bands, and a fair number are in rotation now; including APE, Lushy, Project:Pimento, Vodkanauts, Tipsy, Bella di Waikiki, Tiki Tiki Bamboooos, Tiki King, and many others (not to mention more established acts like Don Tiki and ComEd). Exotica is alive and well my friends. Any and all suggestions greatly appreciated.



P.S. Special kudos to anyone who can get Cherry Capri to answer my emails!

Well I received those Roudoudou CDs from Amazon.fr the other day. The music is very cool, with an etheral, trippy feeling; something like Tipsy meets Ursula 1000 and they play a gig at the Buddha Bar. Not exactly New Exotica, much more in the ambient/downtempo/chillout category. But its still refreshing to see these new acts take the tiki vibe and do thier own thing with it.

Probably a little too out there for most listeners of the
Tiki Lounge, but I think it might just find a home on the more progressive Naked City. Enjoy.

I wonder...Roudoudou sounds very much as if the people running the label are big fans of "Watership Down". "Hrududu" was rabbit lingo for "car", and would be pronounced/spelled that way in French.

bit of a stretch...?

It's never too late to have a happy childhood!

I just picked up Petty Booka's "Let's Talk Dirty in Hawaiian" which is fabulous listening for any tiki bar. Petty Booka is a ukulele duo from Hawaii ... their cover of "These Boots are Made for Walking" is awesome.
All hail the freaky tiki!

Wowza! Just visited www.vegasvics.com for the first time and found it to be quite well done. Nice to see there are others out there who are, like myself, not only Tiki-obsessed but Music Geeks and Font-a-holics as well.

Speaking of music.... This must be tiki music


The song list is kickin' it, YO! Check it aahh 'ite!

As an example it goes from... Come Sail Away, right into Gettin' Jiggy Wit It

What the F! is the Tiki Stomp??
Please judge me by my mugs...
they are an extension of my soul, a mirror of my DNA,

The Ketchup Song? Aieeeeee!!!!

Run far, far away from that CD!
Although I do like getting Jiggy with it, it has no place on a 'Tiki' CD.
