Chapter 4 examines the Islamic voice as a morally steeped and widely deployed discursive resource in Bamako popular music. It focuses on the inter-textual and inter-subjective references to Islamic thought and practice in three distinct, though frequently overlapping genres of vocal performance: praise song, rap, and dance band lyricism.
