2015.03.08  -  With thanks to my contact Sergey Soplenkov, I include here following remark by Al Gromer Khan:

As to the Yoga Popol record the musicians were: Pandit Sankha Chatterjee – table, Beena Chatterjee – vocals, Peter Müller – sarangi, Florian Fricke – indian harmonium, AGK (Al Gromer Khan) – sitar.
It was recorded at STUDIO 70 Munich in (I think 1974).

With best wishes


At GEMA Al Gromer Khan is registered as composer of 'Yoga' :


   Relevant quotes:

Gerhard Augustin
: Tell me something; are you actually playing on the album YOGA?
Florian Fricke: This is part of the same chapter. YOGA is an unauthorized release. Some Indian musicians visited me in my studio, and somebody else took the tapes and sold them under the name of Popol Vuh, but it had nothing to do with Popol Vuh, really. I'm playing harmonium, and organ. I think it was released in Italy. (Eurock)

   Note 1:

US radio-producer John Diliberto writes somewhere on Al Gromer Khan: “Many artists cite Germany's 1970s electronic scene as an influence. Munich-based Al Gromer Khan was actually there, recording the album 'Yoga' with Popol Vuh. He is a trained sitarist who doesn’t let virtuosity get in the way of carefully designed, ambient ragas on his album, 'Mahogany Nights'. His music is always a fusion of east and west explored on albums such as 'Kama Sutra' and 'Divan I Khas'”.

   Note 2:

In the discography-section of his website (www.algromerkhan.com) Al Gromer Khan mentions 'Yoga' as an album he collaborated on.
