520    In this dissertation, I argue that Ugandan musicians have 
       transformed Western classical music from a music of 
       European missionaries and colonizers into a local 
       practice. While East Africans of the independence era 
       actively expunged European influences from many kinds of 
       cultural expression, classical music in Kampala does not 
       seem to have received the same treatment. By means of 
       archival and ethnographic analysis, I show how distinct 
       local histories of colonization, missionization and post-
       independence politics have shaped Ugandans' perception of 
       the European Other. The short duration of British rule and
       a ban on Kenyan- and Zimbabwean-style European settlement 
       alongside the acceptance of Christianity as an African 
       practice are among the factors that contributed to my 
       interlocutors' perception of classical music as a sound of
       Christianity rather than a sound of colonial domination 
520    I draw on fieldwork from 2006-2007 in Kampala to 
       demonstrate how Ugandan classical musicians negotiate 
       relationships in the context of a scene in order to 
       ameliorate disconnectedness in some sectors of 
       contemporary global economy. Kampalans participate with 
       musicians in other African metropoles in transnational 
       networks of classical music that exclude Europe and North 
       America. By circumventing the West, Kampala becomes one of
       a plurality of centers for cultural production in global 
       classical music 
520    I consider classical music as a practice in order to 
       determine how its performance both expresses and shapes a 
       postcolonial identity in Kampala. This also allows me to 
       shift focus to the lived experience of the everyday, and 
       determine exactly whose everyday includes the practice of 
       classical music
