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.

FIUL - debrief!

This week-end, we were at the FIUL : International Ukulele Festival of Lerrain. Lerrain is a very small village in the Vosges region, France, and very near (80 km!). It was the second edition, and all the musicians that came last year were back there, plus a good bunch of newbies, coming from all Europe, plus a few from America.

Patrick and Juliette

The Nosy Diva and Ukeheidi invited to play with them by Gus and Fin.

Three days of non stop music (from 10AM to midnight), with an "open stage" where everybody can come and play. But after the stage sessions, life didn't stop... and in the "camp" for musicians, we had jam sessions until... 8 in the morning!!

He is a video in which you can see Gus, of the famous Gus and Fin duo, and Uncle Emile, playing their Bocarinas along with the Nosy Diva : it was the very first time they played the nose flute. A real European orchestra! (Scotland, Germany, France) :
