2. Footloose Denied
Popping your ear-buds in between classes to listen to the latest Rihanna song might be no big deal to you, but music is not allowed in schools and by extension, there are no schools for teaching music. Even stores and malls don’t play music through speakers, to avoid offending religious traditionalists who see music as a pathway to moral destruction. This is so even though the country’s music industry is thriving, and the medium is not illegal. Like in every great “banned music story” however, there is an underground music community that is hidden from the view of prying traditionalists eyes, and down there every foot is definitely loose.
