From Tom Hernandez:

GONDIO RAO looks to have had a career first with a group called "Les Himalayas". He then came over to the U.S. with fellow countryman Perumal Sami, the double-bodied boy, in 1910, '11, and '12. In 1911 he appeared alongside Lukshoni Bai as brother and sister with Ringling Brothers Sideshow.

Several people believe that Gondio may later have been rechristened "A-Go, the Mexican Wonder."
