As multifaceted as the sparkling jewel he wore on his turban, Korla Pandit was a television pioneer, one of the first musicians to popularize the Hammond organ, and a godfather of the exotica music genre. From 1949, first in Los Angeles and subsequently in San Francisco, this self-described son of a Brahmin priest from New Delhi performed on TV daily while staring silently and dreamily into the camera. In the 1950s he charmed American housewives, and decades later would captivate the hipsters who frequent tiki bars. In the Bay Area he lived and performed in Marin and Sonoma counties. Musical admirers interviewed in the documentary include Carlos Santana, Booker T. Jones and Steven Halpern. Editor: Dan Friedman. Producers: Eric Christensen, John Turner. Director: John Turner. (US 2015)
