I really like the song Hatari by Mancini on the Hatari soundtrack, sounds of Hatari is great too, lots of tribal percussion, african style with lounge mixed in.

Wow! Hatari is one of my all time favorites...

Listening to it, you can just feel the dark clouds coming in over the African Veldt...very exciting.

As far as modern day tiki bands are concerned, I am going to do a shameless plug here: My band, the Smoking Menehunes. While we don't do any kitsch, camp, exotica or lounge, we do play straight up Hawaiian swing and Hapa-haole music from the 40's, 50's and 60's. We also do not play any surf music. We are very tradtional. No slack key either. Just pure steel guitar, Uke and upright bass. Very bare bones. When we play paid gigs, we always have a hula dancer.

Just so happens one of our first gigs of the season will be 4-28-07 at the tiki treasures and poly pin-ups shinding, with SQUID joining us on drums. If you want to hear the music you would have heard at the hotels in Waikiki circa 1962, then please come check us out!! Our singer is a protege of Bill Tapia, and is of Hawaiian descent.The other two of us our Haoles. We play the same kinds of things Bill Tapia plays, and in fact, he played with us all last summer as our 4th member. Needless to say, we all learned quite a bit from him!
