Negotiating for Repatriation of Music and Dances Collection

You are here

Through networking and collaboration, the Archive negotiates for the repatriation of copies of audio recordings, video recordings, and photographs of Ugandan music (and accompanying notes, if available).

The British Library Sound Archives has already repatriated copies of Klaus Wachsmann’s recordings of 1949, 1950, and 1954 and these total to 1575 items of audio recordings.

Beyond facilitating the repatriation of collections from outside Uganda, we take back this music to the community where it was recorded since not all users are able to come to Makerere University.
