Norman (Otis) Richmond aka Jalali shines the musical spotlight on Fela. The Nigerian-born Black President Fela Kuti is the subject of an award winning Broadway play which is currently playing at the Canon Theatre in Toronto. Jalali interviews Edward Jaheed Ashley, the producer of the documentary "Fela NYC Fresh From Africa". In the spring of 1986, Fela, the legendary Nigerian musical warrior, triumphantly returned to New York City after a 17-year absence. Ashley produced an African Rhythm Mentary on Fela's historic visit to New York City. Diasporic Music is music made in the West, but not of the West.
