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.

Nickelodeon by Hans Christian Klüver

Hans Christian Klüver (check this post) has begun a series of short videos, called "Mister Swing's Freestyle Nickelodeon". The nickelodeon was the first simple theaters projecting motion pictures, for a 5 cents (a "nickel") admission fee.

In this series, Mister Swing sings or play short jazz pieces in a personal free style. The last one was made with a nice guitar and nose flute playings, pioneer-trappers' style (Winnetou Theme). Fortunately, you won't have to pay a nickel to watch it, although it's worth more!


  1. I like the song and I think the nose flute play is well executed. I love the style, reminds me of Tom Waits and Mystery Slang. From the back of a car: how small does the theatre get! Perfect atmosphere, on the road...

  2. Yes! We need more nose flute videos by Mr. Swing!

  3. Well Done!!!
