Show 51: Rendezvous in Okonkuluku


Waitiki is on a roll! Performances as the Waitiki Orchestrotica paying tribute to Esquivel... a Hawaii Music Award for Best Exotica Album for their 2003 record Charred Mammal Flesh... and now, they're back with a new recording produced by none other than Brother Cleve!

Rendezvous in Okonkuluku is a sometimes jazzy take on exotica by these Boston-based musicians... and it's also pretty amusing in spots, like on the final track, Pineapple Lilt. Good stuff!

As for the title, there is a whole mythology behind the imaginary and exotic place called Okonkuluku. If you're not already familiar with it, check out the following links:
