Panflute Fridays

Watched Picnic at Hanging Rock and Rene reminded me about Gheorghe Zamfir, "The Master of the Pan Flute."

That's some sweet pan flute and serious 70's marketing skills! Zamfir, born in Romania on April 1, 1941, is known for playing an expanded version of the traditional Romanian-style pan flute (nai) of 20 pipes to 22, 25, 28 and 30 pipes to increase its range, and obtaining as many as eight overtones (additionally to the fundamental tone) from each pipe by changing the embouchure.
