Gheorghe Zamfir in Craiova

The best panflute musician in the world, Gheorghe Zamfir, was present today at the University of Craiova (Romania), at an event dedicated to him and the launch of the book “Gheorghe Zamfir, a Romanian wonder”. The book might not get translated to English, but it’s enough info on the internet about him, so who’s interest just google “Gheorghe Zamfir”.

I had the pleasure to hear him and listen him playing the panflute today. It was an emotional moment, especially when he is one of my favorite musician and a great artist.

Luiza Roșulescu posted a small recording from the event. My phone was with my 3 years old son to keep him quiet 🙂 so I only have few photos from the event, from the back of the audience :).

For more informations about Gheorghe Zamfir please check his web site: ( – english version)

I think he’s most known for performing James Last’s “The Lonely Shepherd” from the soundtrack of Quentin Tarantino’s “Kill Bill vol 1”, which is indeed a great piece of art.

For more info about him, please visit the wiki page:, and search on youtube to listen him performing:
