Norman (Otis) Richmond aka Jalali shines the musical spotlight on Wynton Kelly. Kelly was an A-List Musician. He was a jazz pianist, born in New York City (December 2, 1931). He died in Toronto, Canada, on April 12, 1971 from an epileptic seizure. An African born in the United States, his father was from Jamaica and his mother from Trinidad and Tobago. He is perhaps best known for working with trumpeter Miles Davis from 1959-1962 and saxophonist John Coltrane. Clevil James is the founder of the LIMERS. In The Caribbean, LIMERS were originally people who hung out on the street corner and discussed everything from the latest sports score to the current parliamentary debate. Their primary purpose is to provide a forum for cultural exchange, with special emphasis on the Calypso art form. Jalali provides an All-African mix of music and politics. "Diasporic Music" is music made in the West, but not of the West.
