This blog is dedicated to the sublime instruments called nose flutes and which produce the most divine sound ever. We have chosen to discard all the native models from S. Pacific and Asia, for they need fingering to be played. We'll concentrate on "buccal cavity driven" nose flutes : the well patented and trademarked metal or plastic ones, plus, by a condemnable indulgence, some wooden craft or home-made productions.

Why do we spend some time making this blog ?

The answer is probably here! Brian F., long time nose flute lover from Long Island, was so excited to received the Bocarinas™ he had ordered, that he sent me an email with pictures of the parcel waiting for him, in front of his door!
We wish Brian long hours of pleasure, and hope to see some videos soon!

Note to our readers : freely supports the Bocarina™ for it is the best plastic nose flute we ever played and also in the goal to help a talented craftsman the best we can, but this blog has absolutely no commercial implication in the business (no commercial implications in any nose flute business : is purely a free observant, with opinions.)
