The Malay Nobat: A History of Power, Acculturation, and Sovereignty explores the history and meaning of the nobat, its spread throughout the Muslim empire, and its emergence as a symbol of power and sovereignty, ultimately showing how existing nobat ensembles in Malaysia and Brunei are the last living musical legacy of the Muslim world.

Raja Iskandar Bin Raja Halid is senior lecturer in the Department of Heritage at Universiti Malaysia Kelantan, Malaysia, and author of The Royal Nobat of Perak.
