Interview: Norman Otis Richmond Interviewed by Chaka V. Grier
Norman Otis Richmond is a walking history of Black music in Toronto and beyond. With more than 50 years in, around and beyond the music business, his work has explored art, politics and everything in between. Host of “Diasporic Music” (once on CKLN-FM, now online) and co-founder of the Toronto chapter of the Black Music Association he is expert in the many cross-currents of Black musical manifestations from jazz to traditional African to soul and much more. This event picks up where our summer “Music Gallery at Home” Interviews left off and features journalist Chaka V. Grier (NOW Magazine, Musicworks) diving deep with Otis to relate old and new stories about a continuum which only grows stronger with each passing year.
