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.

Vintage ad from Brazil
Here is a vintage ad or catalog clip, related to the « No. 25 », id est the metal nose bird call handcrafted by the Fábrica de Pios de Aves "Maurilio Coelho". Look how the whistler (Mr. Coelho Jr.?) hold the nose flute with such an elegant gesture!
