Many Muslim youth use forms of popular culture such as fashion, music and social media to speak out against traditional constraints and to voice criticism about their lack of participation and visibility in society. The international conference “Rocking Islam” deals with the question of how hip-hop in particular shapes the identity of young Muslims. Part of the event is a performance by the artist DJ Arshia Fatima Haq from Los Angeles, CA and the artist DJ Ramin from Leipzig.
