He plays in different groups until 1969, when he joins master Gheorghe Zamfir's group whom he goes abroad with to tour in different countries, the most notable ones being SUA and UK. He dies in 2004, at the age of 60. He is considered to be Romania's best accordeon player, and one of the best in the world, having a great influence on the players in the south eastern region of Central Europe.

He "stole" techniques and styles of playing from lots of accordeonists and even violin players, which gave him the unique style he impressed generations with.
