After World War II, American soldiers returned home from the Pacific with a taste for Exotica, the music, images, food and sex from other cultures they perceived as strange and sensual.

Join us as we celebrate the impact of Exotica music on our generation and generations past.

    Here’s that weird and homoerotic scene I was talking about where Christopher Plummer plays the Inca Atahualpa and dances for Pizzaro who is played by Robert Shaw ( you may remember him as the salty sea captain in Jaws.)

    I think NPR named Yma Sumac one of their 50 great voices. Or maybe she was one someone pointed out as an over-sight? I can’t remember. Very interesting hearing the comparison of Danny Elfman’s work.
