Thanks for choosing KTK airlines!
If you're into great music, no matter where or when it's been recorded then you're at the right place! Grab a drink,
take a seat, fasten your seatbelt. The pilot and the crew wish you a nice trip:
Far out, far east or somewhere else...

KTK59: TAI ET SES TAHITIENS (TAMOURE)


Ladies & gentlemen, passengers on flight KTK59 for Tahiti, we are now arriving at the airport. Today it feels
just like on october 10th of last year, when we started our first musical trip!
We'll spend the next month discovering 60's local music and learn the "Tahitian twist" with some modernised "Tamouré".

A few months ago, we spent some time with Eddie Lund who was one of the first to promote Tahitian pop culture overseas (and Mr Lund is not really far from this record as he hides behind 3 of the songs we get today). This time, we'll follow the evolution in the mid 60's when tavelling to the Polynesian islands became easier for tourists. It sure helped music influences to travel on both ways, giving an occidental vibe to the local sound while Europe (and Usa) would start to dance along.


This week, we'll start our little trip with TAI ET SES TAHITIENS «TAMOURE» (Barclay 52579 from the mid 60's). This first ep will be soon followed by another one with nearly the same cover and an identical tittle (we'll get it next time).
Tai et ses tahitiens gives us a great opportunity to start to dance Tamouré, this ep is crazy fast and dancy, minimal setup, electric guitar, polynesian drums, tahitian (and some french) man vocals...


TRACKLIST:
01 TOTOTOE
02 VAHINE ANAMITE
03 E TU PITI
04 TAU TIARE

Enjoy this moment of "tropical rock & roll"
and stay tuned for the part 2 !
