chapter
posted on 2024-03-07, 22:38 authored by Pam NilanPam Nilan
Muslim youth culture has expanded across the world in the last three decades, in keeping with the revitalization of Islam. Through the appropriation of popular culture, Muslim youth engages a positive youth identity with attractive lifestyle options. For them, popular cultural practice can be ludic and pious at the same time. Music is a key component of contemporary youth culture worldwide. It is also a vital element of vibrant Muslim youth culture, offline and online. In Western countries, young Muslims use popular music to engage with intolerance, Islamophobia and lack of opportunities. Two kinds of Muslim popular music are discussed in this chapter: the nasheed form (reinvented) and Islamised genres; punk, hip hop and heavy metal. New Muslim youth culture is identified as an enriching core of creative practice.
