Summary "This volume focuses on performing arts, popular culture and piety in the Muslim-majority nations of Malaysia and Indonesia, both known for their extraordinary arts and Islamic revival movements. This collection provides an extensive view of dance, music, television series and film in rural, urban, and mass-mediated contexts and how pious Islamic discourses are encoded and embodied in these public cultural forms. Together the authors adopt ethnographic methods--analyzing performance text, social and historical context and local perspectives--to address how pious notions and practices intersect with contemporary religio-ethical projects and sociopolitical dynamics"--Provided by publisher.
