    DEEN TIGHT SYNOPSIS: Music, considered taboo practice by many traditional Muslims, has also become one of the most prominent methods for Muslims to share their faith internationally through Muslim Hip Hop. Hip Hop is a global phenomenon reaching from the skyscraper laden skies of New York all the way to the deep deserts of Arabia and beyond. It is a subculture that transcends boundaries of language, gender, and religion. Deen Tight brings to the screen the untold story of Western Muslims struggling to find a balance between their culture and their religion. Filmed on location with Muslim rappers, DJs, slam poets, breakdancers and a graffiti artist in concerts, recording studios, at homes and in the streets. Our story focuses on the perceived conflict between traditional religious ideals and modernity, as well as both the positives and negatives of Western Pop culture on todays’ Muslim youth. directed by Mustafa Davis info@mustafadavis.com www.mustafadavis.com Follow Mustafa Davis on Facebook :: http://on.fb.me/MtjSIj © 2011 Tabah Foundation ALL RIGHTS RESERVED www.tabahfoundation.org

              Dunya: the first in The Meccan Opening Music Film Series Directed by Mustafa Davis:::Original Music by Mikaal Sulaiman:::Director of Photography by Jeff Corrales the term “music film” is a term that was developed between i and film director, Mustafa Davis. we have teamed up to produce the series of video that will bring my album, Meccan Openings to the screen. they are too much like short films to be called music videos and too much like music videos to be called short films. hence, music film. the other defining characteristic of this project is that all of the music films follow a narrative, albeit an abstract one, that traverses a winding path in an exploration of ego, heart, soul and spirit. the album itself has a strong narrative and Mustafa’s music films will usher that narrative onto the screen. i am very excited about the endeavor. we know it is a daunting task, no doubt, but one we look forward to engaging. i hope you find good in them.
