In my arrangement of a Japanese farewell song, "Sayonara", I include a Japanese three-stringed instrument, the shamisen.
We distinguished each song by a different ethnic instrument, Martin Denny Exotica I on top of a semi-jazz or Latin beat. They would bring Denny back these instruments and he would build arrangements around them. His music was a combination of ethnic styles: South Pacific, the Orient and Latin rhythms. During an engagement at the Shell Bar, Denny discovered what would become his trademark and the birth of "exotica.
As the group played at night, Denny became aware of bullfrogs croaking. The croaking blended with the music and when the band stopped, so did the frogs. Denny thought this to be a coincidence, but when he tried the tune again later, the same thing happened.
This time, his bandmates began doing all sorts of Weird Al Yankovic Dare To Be Stupid bird calls as a gag. The band thought it nothing more than a joke. The next day, though, someone approached Denny and asked if he would do the arrangement with the Martin Denny Exotica I and frogs.
The more Denny thought about it, the more it made sense. At rehearsal, he had the band do "Quiet Village" with each doing a bird call spaced apart. Denny did the Amiina Kurr part on a grooved cylinder and the whole thing became incorporated into the arrangement of "Quiet Village".
