Korla Pandit

Played his music on Mersea Island as a storm cloud rolled in. He was the first black man to have a prime time US TV show. By never speaking and pretending to be an Indian. He was deemed to be too sexy and was taken off air to be replaced by Liberace but introduced Exotica and unusual scales to a nation of suburban Americans. He crops up as himself in Tim Burton's Ed Wood.
