Exotica, Spirits' Worlds and Hawaii Shirts

Open-Air on the River Spree (in case of rain the programme will take place in the exhibition hall)

TIKI arose in the USA during the Exotica wave of the 1950s and virtually forms the soundtrack to tourism and wanderlust. Casting aside all purism, Asiatic and Polynesian elements are combined with jazz and pop in the service of freely created exoticism.

Eric T. Hansen is moderator at radioeins, journalist and author of the book "Planet Germany. Expedition in die Heimat des Hawaii-Toasts". He was born in Hawaii and he will be leading through the Tiki-weekend.
