When grandma, God and Britney met in the living room
Growing up between East and West, between Damascus and Vienna, young Luna Al-Mousli was as familiar with the call of the muezzin as she was with Britney Spears' latest hits. Woven into her life's tapestry from an early age are the patterns of Islam, which mix colorfully and cheerfully with those of everyday life "here at home. Luna Al-Mousli chats, bubbles and remembers: her chaotic extended family with six crazy aunts who were to be married off, the unmanageable crowd of cousins, trips to Mecca, first appearances as a "girl group", her grandmother's prayer pyjamas or early attempts to open her own hairdressing salon.
