I haven't really found anything else exactly like this, so I thought I'd share. From time to time, when the mood strikes (i.e. when I'm bored and have a song stuck in my head) I'll lay down a rough Acapella mix of a song. Not too long ago, that song was Quiet Village.

I ended up with six tracks of vocals loosely based on Baxter's originally-published piano score. Liberties were taken with some of the chords, mostly by happy accident.

If there are any other similar exotica covers out there I would be really curious to hear them.

Nice! All the vocal tracks are yours? You should have made a video of you singing all the parts

Thank you! And yes, all the tracks are me overdubbed. It's the only effective way of getting that music out of my head. I've seen those multitracking videos, but I'm not quite photogenic enough to pull that off.

Something else Exotica-/Lounge-based I recently finished further up that page - an old-school remix of Harlem Nocturne, based on a rather exotic recording by Doc Severinsen from '68:

Figured I should keep everything in one thread.

Built myself a steel guitar, and have been learning how to use it. In the process I've made some more exotic recordings:

Call of the Jungle

Birds of Paradise

Night Bazaar

Also did some covers of Hawaiian tunes:

The Moon of Manakoora

Ke Kali Nei Au

You have been busy Bam! All very nice. Personally I like the acapella songs better than the steel guitar just because it's unique.
