Eastern Music vs. Western Music

Seen: “The Monterey Pop Festival” (film), 1967, which basically amounted to one big, long rock concert, but which included a sitar solo (a sitar is like an Indian guitar). The hippies in the audience seemed to dig it, man! “Groovy! Far out! Pass the L-25, dude! Is that purple fur on the balcony?”

What kind of a freak do you have to be to enjoy the thin, tinny sound of the sitar? It sounds like there’s an insect stuck in your ear: “doctor, I think I have a cricket living in my ear!”
