Despite her busy schedule, Philippa tried her very best to listen to the indigenous sounds of Africa appreciating the startling diversity contained within. For instance, in northern Sudan, she heard music in a harem where a bride was being prepared for her wedding with a groom she had never ever seen. But the music of Buganda intrigued her the most. It was there that she met the famous ethnomusicologist Joseph Kyagambiddwa, who would later let her listened to songs such as “The Lamb Who Smoked a Pipe” and “Eating the Delicious White Ant”. But the musical climax of her African trip came from hearing a performance of King Mutesa II's private royal orchestra, which was given specifically in Philippa's honour, a rare privilege for an outsider.

Keywords:   African music, northern Sudan, Buganda, Joseph Kyagambiddwa, King Mutesa II
