This week on Global Notes we’ll spotlight keyboardist Lance Kaufman, an artist who pays homage to Korla Pandit, a man many considered the “Godfather of Exotica” music. In 1996 Kaufman released the album Journey to the Ancient City. He also took on the name Karla Pundit, which was a play on the name Korla Pandit. Kaufman once said this is a true tribute to the artist, not a spoof. We’ll explore the genre and Kaufman’s take on exotica music with Morning Shift and Radio M host Tony Sarabia.
