A coalition of musicians is demanding the Recording Academy restore more than 30 categories cut from the Grammy Awards, alleging the reductions unfairly target ethnic music and were done without the input of its thousands of members.

A protest was held Thursday in Beverly Hills, Calif., at an academy board meeting. A modest turnout of musicians hoisted signs above their heads with such slogans as “Grammys Honor All Music” and “It’s Not Just About Rap, Rock or Country.” Some Latin jazz protesters brought instruments and turned the rally into a spontaneous jam session.
