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.
