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.

Cyril Lefebvre†



No, he was not a noseflutist, but a regular reader of this blog, and he gave me many encouragements making it. He also helped me a lot making the site www.chordmaster.org dedicated to plastic ukuleles. More, he was a friend.

He was a kind of "Mister Ukulele" in France, musician, historian, author of world known methods, he was a slide guitar player, a concert organizer, founder of ukulele.fr. More, he was a friend.

Cyril Lefebvre passed away today, and we all are very sad on this Easter sunday.

May his memory stay alive!

  4. I only met Cyril two years ago after exchanging letters and emails for years. He was

    such an inspiration to so many people and his music lives on in our hearts.
