Juno Lewis, writer of Kulu Se MamaCopyright © 2002
Julian Bertrand Lewis, known as Juno, was a drummer, visual artist and maker of unusual musical instruments, including a trumpet with double bells. He was best known for writing 'Kulu Se Mama', famously recorded by John Coltrane in 1965. Lewis sang and played both conch shells and some of his own percussion instruments on the recording. In later years he was regarded as something of a mentor to young musicians and artists in Los Angeles, where he spent most of his adult life.
