about

Born from the unfulfilled desires of a whole generation for a peaceful, yet adventurous life in a mystifying environment, a new pop art style emerged in the 1950s combining elements of different cultures from the Pacific area. Part of this movement became a smooth, yet exciting music with a strongly picturesque approach labeled as “exotica”. The compilation at hand “Paradise Found - Rare Exotic Sounds Vol. 1” captures the entire spectrum of moods and directions this music took at the pinnacle phase of its popularity. Beginning with an introduction broadcasted from Hawaii and a salutation ceremony in every imaginable language spoken on the Polynesian islands, the compilation directly pulls you into a colorful and far-a-way world. Close your eyes, have a fruity cocktail and drift through the mystical soundscapes based on laid back swing and haunting bebop fundament with sudden interjections of Polynesian traditional music, screaming monkeys and yelling parrots, hot blooded ritual dances with that certain savage feeling and charming melodies that bring pictures of a sunset at a beautiful beach to your mind with the wind softly blowing through the crowns of the palm trees. Exotica music as it is featured here is the mind bending and expanding musical experience of the 1950s. The psychedelic dreams of the early post war USA. So be enchanted by this captivating compilation. Aloha!
