After filming his performance on a street in Rabat, Morocco, we approached the blind singer to thank him „for the music“. This faux pas earning us a brusque retort: „That is not music. I am reciting the Koran.“ In the eyes and ears of a non-Muslim, his religious offering had the air of a concert on the street. But what of the Muezzin in Jeljulia, Israel that calls worshippers to the mosque by loudspeaker, who repeats his song exclusively for the camera filming him? The significance of social and religious practice is in a continual process of negotiation all around the Mediterranean. In the presence of a camera, the roles of acteur and spectator are in new allocation.
