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.

Gangnam Ukulele Style...

Will Grove-White, honorable subject of Her Majesty and inestimable member of the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain had already gratified us with great covers featuring nose flute (James Bond and Star Trek themes), but also with clever and luminous compositions (check notably La Vie en Nose, from his last CD Small Fry).

Now, Mr. Grove-White, delivers his deadpan cover of the Youtube hit Gangnam Style, « Gangnam Ukulele Style, (with translated English lyrics) », with a short and dry little comment: « Ukuleles, noseflute and voices, performing an English translation of Gangnam style. Whyever not? ». [if you don't laugh here, you can't be my friend].

Well, the nose flute is just a "condiment" here, but is sufficiently audible for this recording to feature in the nose flute archives!

You can get the Small Fry album here.

  1. Oi! I really like the accurate use of acoustic instruments, including ukelele, walking bass and table percussion. The nose flute works wonders as a pitchshifter! Great voice as well. The vibe and lyrics of this version remind me of the wonderful Laid Back. and
