The Spool Man

11 Jan 16 Jonathan Malyon


Last year we spent some time filming in Mumbai. We could not help falling in love with India and its fascinating, warm, generous people. Walking through the markets of Mutton Street, reluctantly awaiting our flight home, we heard the strangest of sounds emanating from a postage stamp sized shop. It came from an old spool player that was being repaired by a charming gentleman by the name of Mohammed Shafi. He was sat in his late father's shop where he had worked since childhood. He told us about his life.
