This paper attempts to examine the mediation's and negotiations that occur when the Other appropriates a particularly parochial cultural expression. The paper pays attention to the multiple scholarly approaches towards understanding the musical imaginary. In particular I take interest in an approach that articulates an aesthetic component that emerges from the socio-cultural ground. In other words, what negotiations occur when a white male German co-opts a cultural expression that is deeply invested in identity politics.
