Hausa Oral Songs and the Influence of Shari'a: The Bakura Experience ab 49 EURO Policy on Tradition
This book, Hausa Songs and Shari ah Implementation, focuses on the influence of Shari ah implementation on Hausa oral songs. The book classifies oral songs into two major categories: Pre-Shari ah and Post- Shari ah songs. Pre-Shari ah songs are many and free, in their diction, from Shari ah influence in handling topics that is either of childbirth, marriage, farming, polygamy or death. Religious references are either unconsciously or connotatively used in pre-Shari ah songs. Post-Shari ah songs are minimized and restricted by Shari ah policy. This is seen in the post-Shari ah songs, which are directly, or indirectly religiously conscious. The book presents Sub-genres of Pre-Shari ah and Post-Shari ah oral songs with adequate examples. It also defines the position of oral songs and that of oral singers. The book established the fact that Shari ah policy has not only changed the diction of the Post-Shari ah songs but also the lives of oral artistes and public function.
