3 paragraph response to music article and song


After you read and listen to today’s material, answer part A in about a paragraph (at least 5 sentences):

 “Shekarchi” (The Hunter) feat. Esfand & Shara  –https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QLBV-Toge6I

  1. Listen to “Shekarchi” (The Hunter) feat. Esfand & Shara as you read the section “Hazards of Exoticism” (p. 356-358 in the PDF version) of Niknafs’ article. What are the two ways that Niknafs explains that this song could be read? Describe specific aspects of the music (i.e. melody, harmony, instruments, effects) and identify how you might hear the song in one, the other, or both ways. 

Then, choose one of the following prompts, to answer in about 1-2 paragraphs (at least 6 sentences):

  1. Niknafs is clear in the article that Islamic discourse does not universally cast music as a sin. Quote a passage (include the page number) from her article that explains this, and then answer the following question: Why is this distinction important?
  2. Raam names the “orientalist” approach that he noticed of some critics and some audiences towards his band. What does “orientalist” mean in general? Describe what the approach means when Raam talks about it, and why it is a problem here.
  3. Raam says about the band’s second US Visa application: “We just want to play Rock ‘n’ Roll. And to them that was just something else I guess” (355). What might this mean? Use specific examples from the “Global image, local understanding, and stereotypes: fluid identities” section to explain your answer.
