Remembering Korla Pandit and revealing his secrets.
Korla Pandit, the amazing musician who played entrancing exotic music as he silently stared into the television camera with his mesmerizing gaze was not what you were led to believe. Korla had a secret and if it was found out, he would have lost his career and quite possibly his family.
Even after his death, his own children and grandchildren were hard pressed to believe the truth behind his deep, dark secret.
He is known as the God Father of Exotica music and was a trail blazer in more ways than one.
The film covers the arc of Korla's career, from having his own music show on television in the 1950's to years later where he developed a cult following playing tiki bars and lounges. The secret of his true identity, he carried to his grave and was revealed only after his death in 1998.

We are thrilled to have on the Mid-Modcast John Turner and Eric Christensen the creators of the Korla Movie.
