What is Tiki Tiki?
In Spanish — particularly Cuban Spanish — Tiki Tiki is a funny saying meaning constant conversation, constant habla habla, the kind of noise that would make non-Latinos a little crazy. It is talking fast, hands in constant motion about 17 subjects and somebodies all at once.
We adopted Tiki Tiki as our name because we plan on doing a lot of talking here, a lot of back and forth, about a lot of subjects and definitely all at once.
And also because it is the sound of a Spanish heartbeat – tiki-tiki-tiki-tak tiki-tiki-tiki-tak.
