Exotica Women - Ethereal Sounds, Jungle Rhythms! Crayons to Perfume!

It really all started with airplanes. They made way for world wide exploration, the fantasy of it all captured on film - musical scores and eventually moved just to music. A simple album that could be played at home, while one enjoyed an evening cocktail with feet propped up on their recliner in the comfort of one's own living room. Music, that could carry one from the orient, to the jungle, to outer space, and then down to exotic South American locations and back again. Men usually led the orchestras but there were a few women instrumentalists and female voices and many uncredited singers who helped create these beautifully lush layered sounds. Eventually these international sounds snuck into Rock'n'Roll, and today on Crayons to Perfume! we hear it all. So come go with me on an adventure around the world, following the ladies who made the often quirky, weird, and wonderful sounds - Exotica Women! Listen here at 7pm tonight!
