Tiki Oasis 11 – the best one yet! Some words and lots of video

Another Tiki Oasis has come and gone. Having been to all 11 Tiki Oasis weekenders, I can without a doubt say that this year’s event was in many ways better than the previous 10, (and that my friends is not an easy accomplishment) especially the music – not that any Tiki Oasis ever had below par music, they’ve ALL been marvelous but this one was that much more over the top

You will learn about Exotica’s success in the pop world as well as the significant Latin Jazz artists that helped shape the genre. Join us as we go south of the border with George Shearing, Cal Tjader, Jack Costanzo, and Eddie Cano.

Friday August 5 – legendary album cover artist Lou Beach at La Luz!

Lou Beach, Alpha Lubicz and Sam Lubicz are connected via DNA ( father, daughter, son), glue, scissors and X-acto blades and a love of cutting and pasting. They make collages of depth and beauty that chronicle their journeys through the subconscious, creating imagery that is strongly graphic and narrative, telling tales that alternate between the immediate and the mysterious, visionary speculations on pop culture, comics, death, sex and personal history.
