Musician and composer. A service was held at the Waikiki Elks Club for Martin Denny, the 93-year-old composer, recording artist and Waikiki musician who died at his Hawai'i Kai apartment.

Denny was born in New York and moved to Honolulu in 1954. He was perhaps best known for developing and defining his own sound, which became the pop-music genre called "exotica," combining bird calls, jungle chimes and croaking frogs with Asian, Latin and Pacific rhythms, jazz and pop music.

Denny is survived by a daughter, Christina Denny, and sister, Judith Kane.
