Just a little video of the Samoan nose flute or 'Fagufagu'. Very similar to other noseflutes from other parts of Polynesia such as the 'Fangufangu' from Tonga. A sort of 'revival' is currently under way...

Real cool, love it Creasey, it's an art that t great Nopele Vehala made famous as he toured t Pacific n really neat to know that Samoa had this art form as well.

Creasey any of these pictures related to u. Funny t men to resemble t Fijians but women looked really poly u might have had a thing there w yo claim of Samoa's Fijian ancestry, l mean seeing is believing. I think l'll look at it again. Thanx.

I'm glad you like it Benz. This 'revival' I spoke of wouldn't even be possible without the help of Tongans like Mahina, who also play the fagufagu/fangufangu.
