Discover the various sonic and musical practices of Muslim societies and the Muslim diaspora! In this multi-session course, instructor Hamidreza Salehyar discusses the diversity of Muslim discourses on music. Engage with selected audio-visual examples ranging from Quranic recitations to “traditional” musical performances; new popular genres such as Turkish religious pop, Palestinian hip-hop, and diasporic Muslim punk; and Sufi world music.

Through these examples, the course aims at developing familiarity with a diverse range of social, cultural, historical, religious, and political contexts in which such sonic and musical practices have emerged, providing a deeper understanding of their significance in the Muslim world.
