Waitiki (USA)

Village Life



When Barack Obama visits Berlin on Thursday, 24 July 2008, a number of roads will be closed to traffic. Consequently, you will be able to access the House of World Cultures in the following ways only: from Hauptbahnhof, or by taking the M85 bus, or by car along Willy-Brandt-Straße or the Bettina-von-Arnim-Ufer.

When Waitiki play their exotica style, audiences start flicking their fingers almost without realising it. At the House of World Cultures, the band invite their audience to join them on a South Pacific adventure. Images of endlessly long deserted beaches come to mind when they play classics like ‘Voodoo Love’, ‘Quiet Village’ and their own recent Polynesian pop compositions. No wonder that this tiki-tainment band headlined the Hawaii International Jazz Festival.
