The Taqwacores
€ 13.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A Muslim punk house in Buffalo, New York, inhabited by burqa-wearing riot girls, mohawked Sufis, straightedge Sunnis, Shi´a skinheads, Indonesian skaters, Sudanese rude boys, gay Muslims, drunk Muslims, and feminists. Their living room hosts parties and prayers, with a hole smashed in the wall to indicate the direction of Mecca. Their life together mixes sex, dope, and religion in roughly equal amounts, expressed in devotion to an Islamo-punk subculture, ´´taqwacore,´´ named for taqwa, an Arabic term for consciousness of the divine. Originally self-published on photocopiers and spiralbound by hand, ´´The Taqwacores´´ has now come to be read as a manifesto for Muslim punk rockers and a ´´´´Catcher in the Rye´´ for young Muslims.´´ There are three different cover colors; red, white, and blue.
