David Toop´s narrative leaves no tone unheard in its exploration. Merging anecdote and biography, autobiography and interviews, fact and fiction and of course, a characteristically eclectic selection of music, David Toop spirals us through the 20th century´s guilty fascination with exotica. Josephine Baker and Carmen Miranda, schlock sci-fi and shrunken heads, leopard-skin leotards and pink fluffy cubicles, The Modern Jazz Quartet and near naked Trobiand Islanders freezing in the torrential London rain, all feature in this extraordinary, syncopated search through dense imaginary landscapes of the unknown.
Includes interviews with Burt Bacharach, Ornette Coleman, Bill Laswell, YMO´s Haroumi, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, The Boo-Yah T.R.I.B.E.
David Toop brings together the words, images and sounds of an extraordinary moment in the culture. Like its predecessor, "Ocean of Sound", EXOTICA changes the way we hear.
