Experience Pagan love this holiday season as Don Tiki unleashes an exotic musical stage show

Honolulu's Don Tiki; the collaborative of top-tier musicians, vocalists and dancers that reinvented the jungle jazzy sounds of exotica, makes their Los Angeles debut on December 20, 2012 at the Walt Disney Concert Hall with a festive Hot Lava Holiday Show.

Drawing inspiration from the original Mid-Century masters of the exotica sound, Martin Denny, Arthur Lyman and Les Baxter, Don Tiki has moved this evocative genre of music into the 21st century.

After triumphant appearances bringing down the house headlining the 11th annual Tiki Oasis event in San Diego and their 2011 Pagan Holiday Show at the Doris Duke Theater in Honolulu, Don Tiki brings their vibrant and luscious stage show to Los Angeles.

Don Tiki features virile vocalist Delmar deWilde from Portland, bassist and purring song stylist Hai Jung from Phoenix, multi-talented Abe Lagrimas on vibes, percussion and guitar, chanteuse Sherry Shaoling from Los Angeles, plus special guests from Brazil Tita Lima and Carlinhos de Oliveira. They will join O'ahu-based members percussionist Lopaka Colon, who continues his illustrious father Augie Colon's bird call tradition, funky drummer Jason Segler, Tim Mayer on reeds, bandleader Kit "Perry Coma" Ebersbach on keyboards, Ryoko Oka on keyboards and t'rung (a Vietnamese bamboo xylophone), MC Lloyd "Fluid Floyd" Kandell and dancer Violetta Beretta.

The band will perform their signature tunes such as "The Natives Are Restless" and "An Occasional Man". "Even though we're tiki-worshipping Pagans, we'll drop a holiday song or two," says Kandell, who was one of Anthony Bourdain's drinking guides when the food impresario visited O'ahu for his series No Reservations in 2008. Bourdain came away raving, "Tiki supergroup Don Tiki knows the world, the subculture of tiki...it really doesn't get much better than this!"

Don Tiki is a creative collaboration of Kit Ebersbach and Lloyd Kandell. The band features Hawaii's top musicians, with cumulative experience ranging from punk to jazz fusion to world beat. Don Tiki has played everywhere from local tiki dives to the Honolulu Symphony, and from Waikiki and Las Vegas showrooms to headlining the sold-out Wassermusik festival in Berlin.
