Randy Wong is bassist and leader of The WAITIKI 7 and is President/Founder of WAITIKI International.

Randy’s arrangements of hapa-haole and exotica tunes (once made famous by Arthur Lyman, Alfred Apaka, and Martin Denny) appear on both WAITIKI albums and “Paradise Lost & Found,” a compilation released in late 2007 by Flea Market Music. His composition “L’ours Chinois,” a Fritz Kreisler-esque violin showpiece that draws influences from Maurice Ravel and classic exotica of the late 1950s was commissioned for Project Copernicus, and were noted by critics as “immediately engaging”. The Palm Beach Post’s Greg Stepanich later named Wong’s “L’ours Chinois” debut as #4 in his Top 10 Classical Music Events for 2007.

About The WAITIKI 7 -
The WAITIKI 7 are helping to define a new movement in Exotica.

Dedicated to the preservation and resurgence of Exotica music, and the related tiki culture, W7 is modeled after the classic groups of Martin Denny, Arthur Lyman, and Gene Rains. The WAITIKI 7 is the only modern group that performs exotica completely live and acoustic—just like in the 1950s.
