A genre of music that emerged in the late 50s and named after the 1957 Martin Denny album of the same name, Exotica is marked by tribal and latin rhythms, enveloped by lush, tropical soundscapes.
Largely panned by critics, Exotica soared (and later fizzled) in popularity in the 50s and 60s. With the emergence of a pseudo tiki/lounge subculture over the past several years, Exotica music has made an unlikely comeback.
