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.

The Nasenflöte sounds like a swan slowly dying and deeply suffering.

Lady Gaga :)

Energic video by Miss Ayano and two friends of hers, playing Born This Way by Lady Gaga. I do not know the original version, but I know I prefer this cover.

But I assume that YW has transformed it a little by an electronic mean [indeed, the nose flute played is the one shown below, and it was recorded with a home made microphone, that distorted a bit the sound].

Here is Chiou's last creation, with a braided design:
