”Exotica is also connected to mass tourism, mass entertainment and mass consumerism. Arthur Lyman has made about 10 records in Waikiki in 30 years. The dome was owned by the owner of the hotel where they played every night, and the performances were performed at night to avoid noise problems. , is a simple yet flawless piece of music, yet possessing an enchanting melody and arousing intellectual interest.It has become a music that is easily criticized these days, but it is the Italian music of the 60s and 70s. Like a movie, it is an imaginary in itself.”
