No idea what this means, but it meant enough to me to post it.
[Found here, with, um, a vid, and “Turquerie” has a Wiki description.]

Okay, let me unpack this one.
Best I can figure it, the image is from the Sonar festival in Spain, ca.2010; it’s one of those add-on images YouTubers throw in there just to have something there.
The music is by the 21st century Mexican composer Fernando Corona, aka Murcof.
Lully refers to the 17th century French composer Jean-Baptiste Lully. Turquerie refers to a style that Lully used in some of his compositions, Turkishness being somewhat of a fad in his time.
The song by Murcof is off the album, The Versailles Sessions, in which Murcof explores a number of 17th century themes.
That should cover it. Striking image, to be sure.
John M. — That’s good enough sleuthing for me, and I just faxxed you a beer.
