R2I Media has gone behind the scenes and looked closer at the realities behind working in the music industry.
While aspirations of becoming a musician are high on the agenda of many young Muslims, the reality of what the industry is actually like is something completely different to what is portrayed on our television screens. We talk to numerous artists who explain what it’s like to be a Muslim and a musician.

Watching television or most of main stream media, including newspapers and many Hollywood movies is very distasteful to us. The mindset that creates much, but not all, of the programming on television and in cinema is abhorrent. It makes people into commodities and promotes violence. It reduces our intelligence and numbs our natural empathetic response to someone in pain.
