Prompt for Blog 7

In this blog, you’ll explore the role of music within a specific religion or spiritual tradition.

First, choose a religion to discuss, like Islam, Hinduism, Judaism, etc. This can be a religion you have personal experience with or one that is completely new to you. Referring to the textbook or online articles (which you must cite if you use!), describe some of the ways that music is used within their religious practice.

Then, find a piece of music associated with the religion that isn’t featured in the assigned reading. Describe the music with our musical elements vocabulary, and discuss how that piece of music expresses religious belief and/or serves a religious purpose. Don’t forget to include a Youtube or Spotify link to the piece of music at the end of your blog.
