Why did they start playing after he had already begun his speech?
Is it protocol to play that when she stands?
When cultures come together, there is sometimes little screw ups. But when you have a visitor, a leader from another country, I would think a little flexibility and compromise on each part is necessary. Like just waiting until he was done with his toast speech to begin that. Obviously he thought is was like the american tradition of just providing some inspiring background music to his speech "hollywood style" LOL!
