Before Korla took on his Indian persona, he played with The Sons Of The Pioneers where he was know as Cactus Korla.
Godfather of Exotica and also I believe created the first of what we now call music videos....

Thanks for the info...interesting that he never spoke a word on his show but captivated his audience just the same....btw: just posted some sealed Korla Lp's on the marketplace forum..shameless plug

I am late to the Korla Pandit appreciation club, and really only knew him from his Ed Wood cameo until digging a little deeper into his music and history. I figured there had to be some old threads about him on TC.

For any Frank Zappa fans there is an interesting nod to Korla (as "Korla Plankton") in the lyrics to Excentrifugal Forz off of the Apostrophe(') album:

There's always Korla Plankton
Him 'n me can play the blues
An' then I'll watch him buff that
Tiny ruby that he use
He'll straighten up his turban
An' eject a little ooze
Along a one-celled Hammond Organism
Underneath my shoes
