Pan pipes also known as the Pan Flute and Zampo¤a are a set of reeds cut in different sizes that are bound together. Often made from bamboo, they are played by blowing air across and through the holes at the front.
Each pipe produces a different note according to the size of the reed and the sound is ethereal and haunting.
Probably one of the most recognisable pieces of music produced by the pan pipes is from the film 'Picnic at Hanging Rock' with the album receiving as much attention as the film.
