I was digging in the Neato Coolville archives the other day and found this 1951 autographed magazine and fan photo of the great and mysterious Korla Pandit!Korla put most of America, especially women, in an exotic musical trance during television’s infancy. He soothed television audiences with his dreamlike songs that he played on the electric organ. With a simple smile, Korla would stare into the camera and melt the hearts of housewives without uttering or singing a single word.
A few quick facts on Korla -
He was born in St. Louis, Missouri and graduated high school in Columbia, Missouri.
Married Disney artist Beyrl June DeBeeson
Music director for Bob Clampett’s Beany and Cecil puppet show Time For Beany.
Appeared in Tim Burton’s movie, Ed Wood.
