Music & Islam: Part 1

  • The Green Room #410, 10310-102 Avenue Edmonton Canada (map)

Join us for a four-part series and discussion on the role of music and Hip Hop in the lives of Muslims. 

Film screening of the documentary "Deen Tight" (directed by Mustafa Davis) followed by a discussion on the history of Music in Islam, and a look at the debate that surrounds singing, playing musical instruments, and being Muslim. 

"Music, considered taboo practice by many traditional Muslims, has also become one of the most prominent methods for Muslims to share their faith internationally through Muslim Hip Hop. Hip Hop is a global phenomenon reaching from the skyscraper laden skies of New York all the way to the deep deserts of Arabia and beyond. It is a subculture that transcends boundaries of language, gender, and religion. Deen Tight brings to the screen the untold story of Western Muslims struggling to find a balance between their culture and their religion."
