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.

What are you going to do for INFD?

14th of June — tomorrow – is the International Nose Flute Day. The date was chosen as an homage to William G. Carter, inventor of the mordern and urban nose flute, which patent was registered Jun. 14, 1892.
Each year, on the 14th of June, united nosefluters around the world do something special to honor the little instrument. And you, what will you do for the International Nose Flute Day?

Our friend Don Luis, from Mexico, just realized a video in which he plays the nose flute, juggles with a pair of tennis balls (Juggling Day stands on 18th!), and read a book by James Joyce (Bloomsday on the 16th!). Hahaha! very creative!


On his side, sensei Mosurin organizes an nose flute exhibition in Saitama (Japan), that will stand from 14th to 19th of June. During five days, the work of 13 hanabue makers will be exposed. On the 19th, a concert will close the event (we wish we could be there, with a thick wallet:).

2016/6/14 (Tue) to 19 (Sun)
open from 11:30 to 16:00
Community Restaurant, Saitama Prefecture Tsurugashima Gomiketani 230-3
Parking available. TEL: 049-287-1792


And you, what will you do for the International Nose Flute Day?
