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 : The Dead Victorians

The Dead Victorians is a british music-hall band, based in London (UK) and composed of 4 musicians : Maestro Paul Tkachenko, Dr. Matthew Blake, Rupert and Mr. Sandiford.

They play many instruments, including tuba, guitar, bass, mandolin, banjo, accordion, winds ... and some others they classify in the « Strange » section.

The strange instruments are, notably, Stephen the Sheep (« a fully playable singing sheep ») and the Dogphonium (on which the mouth piece is underneath the tail...).

They also include in this section a musical saw, a washboard, and many whistles and percussions. The nose flute shines by its absence, since it is used by the Dead Victorians too, as you can see in the following video (we sincerely hope this omission in the list will soon be redressed!).

Oh!! I just forget to write that the Dead Victorians are very talented musicians, and that you can get more info on the Dead Victorians's website and listen to their music :

Here is a video made at the Rose and Crown Theatre, Walsthamstow (UK) during a show for their new album launch tour :
