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. 

PART ONE: 
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. 

FILM SYNOPSIS: 
"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."
