Everyone who has read more than one of my blogs knows that I love India! But. . . . I have to admit that Sitar music is an acquired taste which I am still working on ! Truthfully, I think it is similar to Scottish bagpipes which I can take only in small doses! Not sure that Indians or Scots would like southern rock or bluegrass music from my culture. Taste in music is a cultural thing, for sure.
Notice the Sitar player and his henna hair. In India, when Muslim people go on their Hajj to Mecca, they can dye their hair, as a mark of recognition! I have no idea if this is true for this musician, but thought I would throw that out!
India with it 1.” something” billion population (it keeps changing!) probably has lots of Guinness World records. I do love the flute and the drums, though!
This Is Incredible Indian Music!
I don’t play the guitar, but would love to have someone who knows how the sitar compares to the guitar.
