Perspectives: A Conversation with Rohail Hyatt

Arts Initiative and Muslim Societies in South Asia Seminar

Rohail Hyatt, Producer, Coke Studio; actor; film composer; rock music artist; and keyboardist

Chair: Ali Asani, Professor of Indo-Muslim and Islamic Religion and Cultures, Faculty of Arts and Sciences; Director, Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Islamic Studies Program, Harvard University

Hyatt will discuss the laws of nature in contrast to the current state of global music standards. Like genetically altered food, our sense of what is considered ‘musical’ seems to have been altered too. In the eastern world, music is considered to be the ‘food for the soul’. Do we know what are we feeding our souls lately? Has organic music completely died, or will there be a resurgence in this field as in the case of the food industry?

Co-sponsored with the Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Islamic Studies Program
