Mariam Shalaby on Qur'anic Recitation Among Pittsburgh Egyptian Muslims

Our guest for this episode of the Music at Pitt Podcast is recent graduate Mariam Shalaby. Mariam graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 2018 with a BPhil in Music through the Honors College and Department of Music and a BS in Natural Sciences. She is a first generation Egyptian American now in her second year at Penn State College of Medicine in Hershey. And though we’ve heard rumors that medical school can keep you busy, Mariam recently had her article “Qur’anic Recitation Among Pittsburgh Egyptian Muslims: An Ethnographic Field Study” published in the International Journal of Traditional Arts.
