Good Bye to Tiki for now

The quintessential song in exotica or tiki lounge is "Quiet Village."

The first is by Martin Denny, the second by Arthur Lyman (who left Denny's band to make his own mark.) I lean towards the Lyman version but there are for sure lots of versions of this song out there. It is THE song to do. :)

Although I am fairly sure Les Baxter did Quiet Village as well, let's leave him with a different song that I like "Hong Kong Cable Car"  (which Denny and Lyman have probably done as well. :) )
