Peruvian Pan Flute
The Peruvian Pan Flute is beautiful in sound and a wonderful way to introduce someone to a musical instrument. Impress your favorite musician with this mythical instrument.
Status Panpipes are sets of graduated flutes joined together in a bunch shape. The sound is produced by blowing across the top of the holes. According to legend, the ancient Greek god Pan was in love with a nymph who was turned into a reed by another deity. Pan played upon this reed for consolation.
The distinctive sound of the Peruvian Pan Flute is heard in much South American folk music.
