It drove me crazy until I remembered that in one of my all-time favorite movies, Ghost Dog, these same two actors played two best friends, but Whitaker's character didn't speak French and Bankolé's didn't speak English. I can't imagine that the scene from Godfather of Harlem wasn't an intentional homage and to whomever was responsible for that: thank you, I loved it and it was beautiful! [2/2]
Ok, so I was watching Godfather of Harlem and noticed something particularly sweet and brilliant for which I wanted to say thank you. There's a scene between Forest Whitaker and Isaach de Bankolé; Bankolé and Whitaker's characters both speak French and English, and they are Not Friends. It reminded me of something but what was it?

Shakuhachi work continues. I've posted a bit about it on the hellsite at https://twitter.com/unyuuwind, and with luck the store will open before too long.
Just in case this ends up being useful: https://circles.garden/profile/0xE7e77B04F860F86C1415Ef14D2B831b159dde414
Here's a demo of the folded bore shakuhachi. This is just a quick recording from my phone, so audio quality per se is nothing special, and I'm still getting used to playing them, so neither is the performance--but I hope it gives you some idea of what the instruments sound like now. https://photos.app.goo.gl/MbStkvXU7k7ECPN88
