Event description

Description

Islamic Pop music is a growing popular cultural phenomenon. Some artists like Maher Zain and Sami Yusuf are nothing less than superstars, widely respected and popular. This lecture will address Islamic Pop through the Islamic media company Awakening and its artists. It is based on analyses of Awakening’s song catalogue and other media outlet, but also on interviews and fieldwork. Otterbeck will come straight from the field, following Maher Zain’s UK tour, finishing the 30 October.

Speaker
Jonas Otterbeck is Professor of Islamic Studies at Lund University, Sweden. His main research revolves around Muslims in Europe and Sweden in particular; the Awakening of Islamic Pop is his most recent ongoing project.
