Zamfir - the man, the myth, the legend
Quite possibly the most brilliant man ever, Gheorghe Zamfir was born in Romania April 6, 1941. He is a famous musician who is a virtuoso on the pan pipes. Initially self-taught, 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
