DON TIKI featuring STARR KALAHIKI

Honolulu’s legendary Don Tiki—the collaborative of stellar musicians, vocalists and dancers that reinvented the jungle jazzy sounds of exotica—brings their A-Team to Blue Note Hawaii February 16–18 with an emphasis on their Jazz chops.

Drawing inspiration from the original Mid-Century masters of the exotica sound, Martin Denny, Arthur Lyman and Les Baxter, Don Tiki has moved this evocative genre of music into the 21st century. In fact, Denny gave the band his seal of approval when he played on their 1997 debut album, The Forbidden Sounds of Don Tiki.

The troupe consists of band leader and composer Kit Ebersbach on keyboards, Starr Kalahiki (winner of Jazz album of the year for “Salt”) on vocals, Lopaka Colón on percussion and jungle calls, Abe Lagrimas, Jr. on vibes and percussion, Ryoko Oka on keyboards, Bonny B. (Spyro Gyra) on drums, Mark Tanouye on bass, and dancer/enchantress Violetta Beretta.

Don Tiki is a creative collaboration of Lloyd Kandell and Kit Ebersbach. The band has played everywhere from local tiki dives to the Honolulu Symphony to Waikiki showrooms to glitzy Las Vegas palaces to the prestigious Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles to headliners at summer music festivals in Berlin and Tiki Oasis in San Diego.
