Ladies and Gentlemen - Korla Pandit! In this wonderful clip from deep inside the exotica vault, Korla plays the mysterious Greek rebetiko folk song "Miserlou"

And for those of you who are not yet fans of Korla (I doubt there are many amongst these ranks), here is a great bio of the Great Pandit!

This is actually a link to his official web page. Enjoy!

Extremely...

A friend wrote to me and said, the air of mystery surrounding Korla Pundit is alas lost...he is from Missouri. I beg to differ. Given his bread-basket origins only lends more to the mystery of what motivated the exotic creative impulses from within. The guy is a total gas...a visionary, I say!

My brother informed me that Korla Pandit can be seen playing the organ in the movie "Ed Wood."

Indeed. IN fact, watch the clips from Ed Wood then go back and watch some of the older clips of Korla in action. He parodies himself rather nicely. I jest. It is just like the Korla of old.
