Episode 17. The Importance of the Moon – Ulrike Al-Khamis and Juan de Lara

The Moon has been a revered orb for civilizations from all over the world. It provides gentle light during the night, sets the calendars and regulates the tidal force. Ulrike Al-Khamis explores our fascination with this mystical celestial body and looks at the role it has played in faith, science, and the arts across the Muslim world and beyond. 

This podcast is part of Asia House Arts in Isolation Series and Converging Paths, an initiative organised in partnership with the Barakat Trust that promotes the arts and cultures of the Islamic World.
