Editorial Reviews

Review

"Highly recommended."--"Choice"

"This book breaks new ground as it overturns old assumptions."--Michael B. Bakan"Ethnomusicology" (01/05/2012)

This book breaks new ground as it overturns old assumptions. --Michael B. Bakan"Ethnomusicology" (01/05/2012)"

From the Inside Flap

"Rasmussen has written a classic study of the world of Islamic soundscapes, performances and forms of musical piety in that most complex of societies, Indonesia. With great sensitivity, an alert musical response to players, reciters and audiences, a keen practitioner's ear and eye for subtlety as well as for the complexities of 'noise', she changes common assumptions about Muslim music and, not least, gender in changing Islamic ritual cultures. Her own political awareness and her professional as well as personal relations with women Qu'ran reciters contribute to an exciting an original volume that I recommend to any one exploring the riches of Islamic performances and debates in the contemporary world."—Michael Gilsenan, author of Lords of the Lebanese Marches: Violence and Narrative in an Arab Society
