Muslim Punk in the USABook - 2009
Back in 2005, the notion of taqwacore', a Muslim subgenre of punk rock, existed only as an inspired fiction. Writer Michael Muhammad Knight coined the term for his novel The Taqwacores (Soft Skull Press, 2009), the story of a Muslim punk house in New York. The cult story developed as a cultural phenomenon. But something far grander was in the works; a real Muslim punk scene was starting to emerge, based on the one he had imagined for the book. Photographer Badawi has been documenting the scene since 2006, creating a unique picture of a scene in the making.'
