Snap Scene: Tiki Safari – Rufino & the Coconuts, Martin Cilia, Hellcat III, Factory Theatre. 1st October 2017

It all started back in 1934, when Texas native Don the Beachcomber created Tiki Pop, combining the Polynesian jungle aesthetic with a love of rum and tropical-flavoured cocktails. Soon Tiki-themed bars were popping up all over the USA and beyond.

WWII sparked a resurgence, with returned servicemen bringing a slice of the islands back with them to create home Tiki Bars spilling over with rum.

The audience did a whole lotta shaking to the wildest retro rhythms around from Rufino and the Coconuts, Martin Cilia (the Australian King of Surf Guitar from the Atlantics) and The Hellcat III.
