Synopsis

Focus: The Sounds of Islam focuses on the influence of Islam on the sonic practices of Muslim-majority societies. Centrally, it describes the position and role of sound within the Islamic religion, and in relation to the musics of Muslim-majority societies more generally. It encompasses a broad survey of the Islamic soundscape, examining the role of sound in Islamic practices throughout the world, each considered in its socio-cultural and historical contexts.
