The Grammys will be held at the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles tomorrow (2.12.2012). While there will be musicians inside getting awards and celebrating, there will also be musicians outside protesting cuts in the musical categories recognized by the Grammys.

The categories removed disproportionately affect ethnic music genres like Latin Jazz, Native American, Hawaiian, and Cajun.
Among the categories cut was Best Native American album. This reminds me of what happened in Tucson recently with the removal of certain books from schools.
