The Tikigraphs

The Tiki pop culture phenomenon swept the USA in the 1950s and 1960s. It inspired interior design, fashion and the opening of thousands of bars across the world. It also spawned a musical genre called Exotica with legendary recordings and album covers from Martin Denny, Yma Sumac, Les Baxter, Arthur Lyman and more. The Tikigraphs carry-on the tradition of the Exotica today with their multi-instrumental, mid-century inspired madness. Percussion, marimbas, lap steel, flute, surf guitar, lush vocals and bird calls make up the sonic curtain of original tunes and covers.
