Among exotica’s most exotic statistics, Korla Pandit was a superstar of kinds in the 1950s with a Southern California tv program (also syndicated to other areas of the united states) that featured his body organ playing. Putting on a turban rather than speaking, Pandit basically performed on the Hammond B-3 body organ while staring in to the camcorder, embellishing his riffs with details of china and taiwan and (to some much lesser level) Latin music. It generally does not sound extremely “unique” now, however the simple presence of a guy of Indian source for the then-new moderate of tv was very book within the ’50s. Not really that Pandit was always Indian; biographical information remain secret, although he says he was created in New Delhi. Although he performed some unique music, a lot of his repertoire was actually exoticized renditions of specifications. Due to that, he was quite definitely in the center from the exotica custom, which didn’t seek to provide authentic “globe music” just as much as it do to decorate mainstream pop with gentle world music affects, in order to become palatable to the center American viewers. Pandit documented prolifically in his heyday (over twelve albums for Dream only), and in the past due ’80s and ’90s produced something of the return as his music was found out by a young era. Interviewed for the Extremely Unusual Music, Vol. 2 publication, he in addition has provided some live shows, and got a cameo as himself within the Ed Real wood film.
