  • What is the handflute?

    The handflute is an instrument you make by putting your hands together (take a look at our tutorial).  You can always play it wherever you are since you don't need anything else than your hands.

    There are many different names of the handflute. Some of them are handwhistling, hand ocarina and birdcall. Most handflute players don't know there is a name of it and even less a website. There are probably tens or hundreds million of people playing the handflute. This website only has 200-300 visitors a day though.

    Professional handflute performing is not very common yet but there are a few handflute players out there performing the instrument on a professional level. Combining it with other instruments works perfectly. You can see some of the good players in the "Handflute Marathon" video below. There are also a few videos in the Hall of Fame section with the greatest. If you want to learn how to play, watch the tutorials on the site.
