Pan Flute

The pan flute, often called panpipes, is a wind instrument in which a number of  pipes of varying lengths are fastened side by side. They are closed at one end, with no holes. There are no reeds, so the sound is produced by blowing across the open ends.

The ancient Greek herdsmen used panpipes made of cane. They are named after the Greek god of herdsmen "Pan", although the ancients called this instrument the syrinx.

Similar instruments, made of all kinds of different materials, are found in the folk and traditional cultures of peoples all over the world.  The pan flute has a very breathy, evocative sound. It is not used in the modern orchestra, but is very popular in ethnic and folk music.
