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.

Beautiful bamboo inlays

Another masterpiece made by master Kunio Katada: a wooden hanabue with solid bamboo and other wood (deep) inlays. Notice, there are bamboo slices into bamboo slices... Mr. Katada first composes blocks by gluing wood brackets (see this post), then drills them and inserts bamboo sticks. Then after, he cuts the different parts of the flute, and finally carves the definitive shape. Really a stunning work, for a beautiful result!
