Playlist of Al Jazeera English on Taqwacore

Playlist, a series of video/textual programming on music hosted by Al Jazeera English, just released an episode on the taqwacore phenomenon, or as the show labels it, "the taqwacore movement." The 10-minute video highlights quotes from Mike Knight and Marwan Kamel, a Syrian-American who fronts the Chicago-based Al Thawra. It also contains footage from the taqwacore band tour in 2007 and their intervention at the ISNA conference.
