New book from ethnomusicology professor Christopher Witulski

Ethnomusicology faculty member Christopher Witulski's second book is now available from Routledge Press. Titled "Focus: Music and Religion of Morocco," the text introduces Morocco's place within North Africa and the country's history, highlighting how the pressures of religious life, post-colonial economic struggle, and global media come together within Moroccan music. 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.
