Gheorghe Zamfir

Gheorghe Zamfir (born April 6, 1941) is a famous Rumanian musician who is a virtuoso on the pan pipes. He was initially self-taught and continued his education at the Bucharest Academy of Music and the Conservatory of Bucharest (1968). He came to the public eye when he was 'discovered' by Swiss ethnomusicologist Marcel Cellier[?] who extensively researched Romanian folk music in the 1960s.

Largely through the numerous television commercials for his albums, he introduced the panflute to a modern audience and revived it from obscurity. He has made many albums of panflute music
