Over ten years after the reissue of "Voodoo" and almost fifty since the release of the original, Dionysus Records unveils ROBERT DRASNIN's Voodoo II. Combining ROBERT DRASNIN's beautiful aquatic-like composition with all elements necessary for the exotica sound such as marimba, percussion, flue, piano and more; Voodoo II is destined to become as much of an exotica classic as it's predecessor. The original "Voodoo" (a/k/a "Percussion Exotique") was recorded in the late 50s and released on two budget labels; Tops and Mayfair, insuring its place in obscurity; that is until it's mid-90s resurrection/reissue on Bacchus Archives. The record received its proper place as a representative piece of the genre making a whole lot of Tiki and Cocktail fans very happy. The story didn't stop there. ROBERT DRASNIN, accomplished jazz musician, musical director at CBS television in the 50s and 60s (Mission Impossible and then some) and music teacher at UCLA, was asked to play Voodoo live at Tiki festivals all the way across the country. In the process, Robert was inspired to compose songs for Voodoo II. The new record was recorded with a small combo in February of 2007. The 12 songs from the new album will be performed live at the yearly Hukilau event in Florida. And, like the "Voodoo" reissue, the cover art for "Voodoo II" was created by artist SHAG.
