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.

Latvian video : nose flute and bandoneón

Jānis Pūķis is a latvian musician from Riga. He is also a musical instruments museum owner. Here is a video in which he plays a bandoneón and his home-made wooden nose flute ornated with painted rat teeth, then teaches the young Katrina. In the latvian comment, the video maker wrote : « We are impatiently waiting for the time when the Eurovision song contest will include a nose whistle ».
Jānis Pūķis also plays the musical saw, as you can see here.
