At the French Film Festival last year, the movie "Chocolat" that became a topic has been screened in a Japanese theater without a doubt.
1897 The story of a black artist who existed in the circus of France. The words are never issued, but the story of the minstrel entertainer of the era when the performers were changing from white to black.
In America, a new instrument made for this circus art that imitated a slave black man in the 1840 's is a banjo.
There were black artists who played the famous banjo who was active at the time, such as Picayune Butler and Charlie Pride in the United States, but they have all been eliminated in the era and are hardly known now.
Picayune Butler is already famous at New York's banjo contest, which was held for the first time in the United States in 1857, a popular figure who was second in spite of being drunken in the contest and cutting three strings. 1854 Popular music titled for the first time in Japan by Perry 's Black Ship was the "Picayune Butler" who sang about him.
Mark Twain inquires about American famous white pianist Gottschalk, his piano is the same as the sound that the next girl plays "Tan, Tan, Tan" But what a wonderful banjo playing black Charlie Pride!
"I will break the piano right now and get a brilliant banjo!"
That charlie pride banjo is
It is exhibited at the Hamamatsu City Museum of Musical Instruments now.
That banjo was produced by a San Francisco white banjo builder, Charles Morrel, he is the first time a banjo contest was held in New York before moving to San Francisco.
In the era of slavery, black performers could not leave a name but I want them to know that white people who appreciate and appreciate them were in the United States.
