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.

The brand new Nerima Nose Flute Association

A new nose flute organization is born : The Nerima Japanese nose flute friends association (日本鼻笛協会 練馬友の会). It's brand new, and its creator is no less than Mr. Jun Tanioka himself, well-known by the nickname Hanabue 114.

The Nerima association has its Facebook page here.

Let's take the benefit of this news to tell that June Tanioka published a new batch of videos on his Youtube channel. I cannot resist the pleasure to show you this one, a very energetic YMCA karaoke version, played on a Bocarina and that Mr. Tanioka calls himself a "performance version" :
