Playing Flute From Nose

Music Folk and Traditonal.

Rajasthan Haat Bazar Festival was organized in Jaipur,Rajasthan,India from 5th Oct to 15th Oct.It was full of fun and festival.All traditional Rajasthani items were there and it was a perfect blend of culture,traditions and rituals.I got this video from that place only.In this video you will see a traditonal rajasthani man playing Algoja (2 Flutes) from his nose and is making the environment happy.

Where language ends, music continues to bridge the gab.
Me, being speachless, am glad to be allowed to see these pictures of you, as well as hearing the music.
A wonderful weekend for you.

Ferreira-Pinto said...

I find it quite astonishing. Please tell me, is it to play like that or is he just amusing us playing it in such an odd manner?

Lynn said...

A happy environment indeed!

Gaston Studio said...

Quite unusual, I have seen this on TV and thought so at the time too.

Olivier said...

ShySongbird said...

I have been looking forward to this ;) My goodness! What a cheerful fellow he looks and the flute playing is certainly...erm interesting :)

Great stuff, very energetic and entertaining Bharat!

Tinsie said...

That's amazing! I've never seen anything like that!

Clytie said...

He is not just making the environment happy - he is making me happy as well. I loved the toe-tapping music, and the way he rang his bells :=} - I am smiling still.

James said...

That is really interesting. I would hate to see him try to play with a cold.

Prospero said...

What a mustache. I supposed it's shocking to see someone playing the flute through their nose - but it does make a certain sense, really.

Greeting:)

Jacob said...

Methinks you showed a picture of this gentleman previously...but I don't mind seeing him again with two sticks up his nose.

I'll bet the music has a nasal quality! ;-)

Have a great day!

Luciana P. said...

This mixture of cultures must have been perfect. The traditions of the people must be preserved.
Excellent video!
A good weekend for you!
Kisses, kisses!

ladyviral said...

Cherie said...

that is some talent right there!

Babli said...

Lovely pictures. I enjoyed your post very much. Wish you and your family a very happy and prosperous Diwali.

Diane AZ said...

Fascinating! Seems like it would take a lot of coordination, like trying to write with both hands at once.

Vagabonde said...

That must be pretty hard to do – I can barely play the flute through my mouth! His outfit is beautiful and he is quite handsome too. I had never seen such a musician before – very interesting.

amatamari© said...

Is truly incredible and really fun ... and that mustache!!!

claude said...

Oh, my ! I have never seen that before. He plays very well !

Shell Sherree said...

Well, I've heard of nose flutes but never seen or heard them played before. All jokes aside, that would take some skill!!

Obrigado por sua visita e comentários. Fiquei feliz em saber que temos algo em comum. Eu também adoro conhecer lugares, mas não como são mostrados aos turistas, mas sim na sua essência mais pura, ou seja o dia a dia de quem mora lá e vive lá.
Viver e participar da autenticidade do povo local.
Abraços

Wow, it's already difficult to play this kind of flute with the mouth. It's remarkable that this man can play it with his nose! Have a wonderful week :)

Joseph Pulikotil said...

Hi Bharat:)

I amazed at the length of the mustache. He must be taking special care to grow such a long mush.

Playing the flute through the nose is also fantastic because he has to breathe and play at the same time. Lovely talent.

I enjoyed the festive atmosphere.

Have a lovely day:)
Joseph

altadenahiker said...

Here in the states, men and facial hair is kind of an after thought -- maybe they have it, maybe they don't, maybe they forgot to shave. In any case, no one pays much attention. But from this photo and some previous, it appears in India, it may have some special significance. Is that so?
