Penang's Kelawi Road where the Eurasians set words to music

Jazz pianist: The late Jimmy Boyle was of Eurasian descent.

KELAWAI Road, sometimes spelled Kelawei Road, is one of the busiest roads in Penang. But it will probably have little historical significance to most Penangites, especially the current generation who never saw the quaint street of British-styled bungalows and village houses it was before it got transformed into a modern thoroughfare.

It will probably be referred to by most Penangites as the road leading to the more famous Gurney Drive or the popular neighbourhood of Pulau Tikus.
