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.

Nose flute and bamboo drum!

A sweet and nice video from Japan, on Motzi Youtube channel, in which a young boy plays hanabue while tapping a home made bamboo drum.


  1. Charming and promising... Keep it up!!!

  2. Seems to be a "build your own instrument" workshop.

    They could use some cardboard nose flute patterns.

    Or a "hack a whistle" kit.

    Or a card an drinking straw nose flute kit.

    Maybe someone could make a "DIY nose flute kit" in wood or plastic.


  3. A kit ? either like you did, you design plans, else you have just 2 pieces of wood to glue together :)
