The pan flute is called “nai”, in Romanian and it became renown due to Gheorghe Zamfir, who’s biography can be accessed here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gheorghe_Zamfir
Also you can access the following link: http://www.panflutejedi.com/levni.html
information about the origins and evolution of the pan flute.
What I think that Mr. Zamfir did with the pan flute is close to the evolution of the harpsichord to the grand piano. It is virtuosity at its best.
