The Festival highlights the spanning career over five decades of the most respected Romanian artist, internationally known musician Gheorghe Zamfir, an outstanding personality of the city Găeşti.
Born in the town of Găeşti, Dâmbovița, Gheorghe Zamfir is nicknamed „King of pan flute”. Speaking through an almost forgotten instrument (flute, whistle called Pan), manages to conquer the entire planet, modifying the form, construction and the pan flute technique, considerably widening the range of interpretation. He manages to insert the pan flute in all musical styles, revolutioning the sound and bringing this instrument to the attention of contemporany public.
Besides his prestigious career as a musician, he manifests itself in literature and visual arts publishing poems, essays and an autobiographical book, exposing his paintings in the country and abroad.
The festival will take place in Central Park in Găeşti, and the admission is free.
