Donald Kachamba, a well-known musician from
Malawi in southeast Africa, taught a lecture and performance course at
UCLA in Fall 1999 as part of the Department of Ethnomusicology's "Year
of African Music." The collection contains manuscripts, teaching
materials, and audio-visual materials that he used during his time in
the Ethnomusicology Department.
Some materials in these collections may be protected by the U.S.
Copyright Law (Title 17, U.S.C.) and/or by the copyright or
neighboring-rights laws of other nations. Additionally, the reproduction
of some materials may be restricted by terms of Ethnomusicology Archive
gift or purchase agreements, donor restrictions, privacy and publicity
rights, licensing and trademarks. Transmission or reproduction of
protected items beyond that allowed by fair use requires the written
permission of the copyright owners. The nature of historical archival
collections means that copyright or other information about restrictions
may be difficult or even impossible to determine. Whenever possible, the
Ethnomusicology Archive provides information about copyright owners and
other restrictions in the finding aids. The Ethnomusicology Archive
provides such information as a service to aid patrons in determining the
appropriate use of an item, but that determination ultimately rests with
the patron. The Ethnomusicology Archive is eager to hear from any
copyright owners who are not properly identified so that appropriate
information may be provided in the future.
