Focus: Music and Religion of Morocco introduces the region and its history, highlighting how the pressures of religious life, post-colonial economic struggle, and global media come together within Moroccan musical life. Musical practices contextualize and clarify global historical and contemporary movements-many of which remain poorly understood-while articulating the daily realities of the region's populations in ways that rarely show through current news accounts of religious extremism, poverty and inequality, and forced migration.

As with other volumes in the series, Focus: Music and Religion of Morocco addresses large, conceptual issues though interwoven case studies, in three parts:

  • Part I - Memories and Medias: Who We Are highlights how issues of religion, colonialism, nationalism, and globalization transcend boundaries through music to create a sense of personal and national identity, whether hundreds of years ago or on today's satellite television stations.
  • Part II - Contesting Mainstreams: Where We're Going explores Morocco's sacred and secular music practices as they relate to the country's diversity and its contemporary politics.
  • Part III - Focusing In: Faith and Fun in Fez highlights Fez's sacred music industry by introducing musicians who navigate musical and religious expectations to appeal to both their own devotional ethics and their audiences' wants.
