The fadno is a reed instrument of the Sami people (also known as "Lapp") of Scandinavia. The instrument features a reed and three to six (generally four) fingerholes, and appears to have no parallels among the surrounding Scandinavian peoples.
The instrument is made from a 15-30cm length of the angelica plant (fadno, the term for one-year-old angelica), from which the instrument derives its name. The instrument's reed is unusual, categories as "idioglottic concussion reed".
