Indian Pop Instrumental - C.1970 1970

3 mins United Kingdom

A psychedelic sitar freak-out from an age when western musicians, led by The Beatles' George Harrison and The Stones' Brian Jones, looked east for inspiration. Splendidly swirling shapes, flowers and metallic mobiles provide vividly coloured visual accompaniment for some marvellous and mysterious music. The musicians remain incognito, but the music and its visuals are wonderfully in tune with the late-60s trend for combining Western pop and rock music with the exotic aural emanations of the East.
