Hi everyone I'm Dave and I've loved things South Seas and Tiki ever sense I was a kid and saw Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room for the first time. But I will admit I never really got into it like I am now. I live in a small FL cabin and am working on turning it into a Tiki hut (it's real small) as much as I can it's a rental.

I have a music question, I will use the search too but often a direct question to knowledgeable people is still better. Is the any electronic dance/house music that has taken up the tiki theme?

Thanks



Only one band I know of:

http://narcoloungecombo.bandcamp.com/

Start with track 2. It's not electronic dance/house but it is electronic.....

Hey all, my name is Carey (I know, my screen name is REALLY CREATIVE! Lol), and I'm from Pittsburgh, PA. I'm kind of new to the tiki world, so I'm here mostly for the education and more importantly... The ARTWORK! I'm always looking for new art and artists to hang on my walls, and I've noticed google always brings me here, so I figured it was time to officially join the group. I'll try not to cause too much trouble while I'm here!

Welcome Dave, but let me just say this up front
electronic dance/house music is not Tiki.......just so you know.



OK that may be true as I did read the other day that Tiki is not true South Pacific Island music, but if I remember right basically a jazzy, romantic Caucasian vision of what Caucasians think South Pacific Island music is. If that is basically true I asked the wrong question. Let me add that I do like Tiki too, from what I have heard, if this is the case, I like a lot of different music.

This does remind me a lot of a conversation I had several years ago over contemporary Native American music, which I also enjoy. A woman at work who said she was 15% native American said she was very offended by the music, because it wasn't “authentic”, and it was an insult to her ancestors. I'm thinking to myself that the music I was listening to was created by full blooded Native Americans so who was this self acclaimed 15%er to tell me it wasn't authentic! And does that mean that the only “authentic” Caucasian American music is Fife and Drum Corps?

However if Tiki is not true island music but a stylized version of it, perhaps a better question is, I know a lot of Native South Pacific Island music is very strong on drums with a fast beat for dancing, does anyone know of any updated electronic dance/house music twists on this?

Short answer, Exotica. Exotica has been co-opted to categorize a style of modern house music that does in fact blend "island sounds" with electronic music. I'm not a fan, but I know that a lot of searching for exotica on Spotify and the like turn up a bunch of the modern exotica take. They call it lounge, but lounge doesn't mean lounge like it used to. Different music types again. In this case, lounge refers to stuff that can more likely be associated with smooth jazz.

I have the perfect example at home, just can't think of what it's called.

I'm not a fan, and it's not "tiki," persay.

But if you want good drums, might I recommend tahitian drumming!

Hi,
just saying Hello!
I've always had a thing for Tiki culture, but mainly like the Mai Tai's in Hawaii.
We recently bought a house with a bathroom that is in need of a Tiki restyling.

I'll post pics when I get a chance.

BTW I'm in Los Angeles,CA and a Toy Designer at a big Toy company.

I read about the Tiki market Place happening in Costa Mesa, is that worth going to?
Thanks! Any tips or tricks??

I'm looking for some Tiki-bamboo light fixtures.

Welcome to TC, Abe Lugo!

I can recommend taking a look at local TC member, tikiskip, who makes some awesome tiki lights. Just google "tikiskip tiki lights" and you'll see what I mean.
