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.

Janne Bengtsson and his kilt
Janne Bengtsson is a swedish comedian and musician. He is member of the band Lars Vegas Trio in which he hold the drums, sings and dances, but also, sometimes, plays the nose flute.
There are numerous videos on YouTube showing him, wearing a kilt with the band or in a formal suit during a stand up performance, interpretating what looks to be his greatest hit : El Condor Pasa. In this show, he hardly whistles the peruvian song, but plays with the nose flute ability to make funny noises when speaking.
