If you like listening to Renaissance festival music while watching perhaps the most mindblowing flutist you can imagine, KawauTV is the Twitch channel you want to be following. Sure, you can probably find hundreds of people playing the flute on Twitch or YouTube, and it’s also not difficult to find musicians playing two flutes at the same time.

But if you want to hear a dude play three flutes at once, KawauTV is the man you need to see. And people are loving him.

Here’s the Austrian man’s latest video, which has garnered more than 500,000 views in five days. It’s just KawauTV blasting on three flutes (yes, recorders are actually flutes), but it’s also fascinating.

And yes, there’s more.

Flutes aren’t your thing? Don’t worry. KawauTV has other videos that would fit perfectly if you’re in a desperate pinch to listen to 16th-century music.

All of which is to say: Thank goodness for KawauTV. He’s bringing the Middle Ages into the 21st century—just when we need it the most.
