Apparently, this is a word for, and I quote "A form of punk music or hip-hop that deals with Islamic culture or issues
Muslim punkers call their brand of music taqwacore — a blend of the Arabic word for piety, taqwa, and "hard-core," the English word for musicians who want to be taken very seriously."

The definition does not mention that 'hard-core' does not refer to classical musicians, at least, I don't think it does, but let us not be too hard. Taqwacore such a nice word. Worth a blog post of its own!
