"Widening the Horizon" is the first in-depth study of exoticism in Post-War popular music. The opening chapters analyse the work of Les Baxter, Martin Denny, Arthur Lyman, Korla Pandit and Yma Sumac - the musicians who developed (and exemplified) the style known as Exotica in the 1950s and 1960s. Others address more recent developments in musical exoticism which have revived and reflected the form, such as Haruomi Hosono's "Soy Sauce Music" trilogy; the work of Van Dyke Parkes, on albums such as "Tokyo Rose"; and the career of New Age populist Yanni. Contributors to this anthology include writers and academics from Australia, Canada, Japan, the United Kingdom and the USA.
