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.

Video : Becapella, a stunning duet

Andi Steil and Franz Fendt are two musicians from North Germany who play mainly the hang, and play it beautifully. Hang is a modern Swiss percussion instrument re-invented by PanArt, from traditional indian istruments. They are played by hitting them on different zones producing the notes of a specific scale.

But the Becapella members also play the nose flute : « The nose flute became a standard instrument in our show. Normally, we start and end up with it ».
Andi also adds « We perform everywhere it's not too noisy around the place we perform, otherwise the PA system has to be strong ».

Here, they play the Ode to Joy by Beethoven, with their hangs and wooden nose flutes.

There is also another version here, more ...funky.
