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.

Big fun in Kyōto !

Yesterday, there was a huge open air party in the Tadasu Wonderland forest in Kyōto. Many attractions for a large public : concerts, outdoor cafes and restaurants, a bicycle workshop and more than 100 stores selling clothes, food or hand made goods.

And that was also the nose flute paradise! Nose flutes to buy, nose flute to play. The Nihon Hanabue Kyokai (Japanese Nose Flute Association) had organised a gathering. Mister Tanioka (谷岡淳さん), aka Hanabue114 on YouTube, was there and taught how to play to some people, and was responsible for the On-Lak hanabue booth.

(All photos by Jun Tanioka and Kato Hideo, big thank to them!)

Even the famous japanese singer Keizo Nakanishi (中西圭三さん) joined the group and played the hanabue and the musical saw!

A nice band!

Mister Tanioka made some videos, so you can appreciate the great ambiance in Tadasu forest yesterday!

You can check a few other videos there.

And last but not least, have a look at the great costume worn by Hanabue114! :
