Lebanese Blonde - Thievery Corporation #MusicMonday

I present Lebanese Blonde by electronica duo Thievery Corporation as this week's #MusicMonday feature:

According to a comment on YouTube,

the title is in reference to a particularly potent strain of hashish from Lebanon. the color is a light shade(blonde, not black/tar colored). no doubt they were really baked when they made this tune :)"

However, the instrumentation features a sitar, which is distinctly Indian.  If they wanted authentic Middle Eastern instrumentation, they would have chosen an oud (lute) - not to be confused with the fragrance :-)
