Gheorghe Zamfir (born April 6, 1941, in Găeşti, Romania) is a famous Romanian 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.

Why Can't Ayman al-Zawahiri Be More Like Zamfir the Master of the Pan Flute Loved in Europe by Millions? | TPMCafe (828 words)
And that's why if Ayman was more like Zamfir, focusing his talents on something productive for other peoples' well being, like musical Islamic prayer for example, he'd only be wearing religious garb that disciplined his own soul, and not explosives that don't do anything to help others discipline theirs.
Rather, he is quick to condemn and damn to the point in which he stereotypes entire groups of Somalis, and without lifting a finger of his own except perhaps to type a few letters of hate, he encourages the expenditure of OPL, always OPL, never HOL, his own life.
Sorry Zamfir, if this comparison is freaking you out, but somehow I see you dropping your pan flute and rushing out into traffic to save an elderly Muslim man about to get hit by a bus, risking your own neck.
Zamfir - Biography - AOL Music (689 words)
Gheorghe Zamfir was born in Gaiesti, Romania, on April 6, 1941.
Zamfir caught his big break in the English-speaking world when the British religious television show The Light of Experience adopted his recording of "Doina De Jale" -- a traditional Romanian funeral song -- as its theme.
Many of Zamfir's recordings aimed to create a sense of spiritual tranquility, and some of his compositions were religious in nature.
