Ethan Rosenblum MUET200-0112 Boden Sandstrom Elizabeth Goldman November 9 , 2009 Unit III, Section B : Pop-Raï and Globalization Reading: Al-Taee “Running with Rebels” Focus Questions: 1. How have the musical and social elements of Raï changed from its origins in the 1900s to its emergence on the World Beat scene in the 1980s? In the early 1900’s, rai was sung and performed by men respected for their strong moral and social stature in the city of Oran. Then in the 1980’s new-Rai emerged when oppressed and marginalized women adopted the genre to use it as a vehicle to express political, social, and sexual freedoms. In the most recent development Rai artists base their lyrics and singing style on the traditional genre. They have strong political reactions and borrow Western instruments and rhythms. 2. What were the social and political concerns of Raï mentioned by Al-Taee and how did they affect the globalization of the genre?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
