Dorin Liviu Zaharia (September 25, 1944 – December 3, 1987) was one of the most interesting figures of the 1960s and '70s Romanian pop music scene. He was probably the first Romanian musician interested in mixing Romanian folklore with Indian music. He sang with the band Olympic '64, developing a sound and attitude that were in contrast to the communist regime's "commandments". He wrote and composed with the Olympic '64's members the rock suites "Decameronul focului alb" (1969) and "Karma Kaliyuga" (1971), both considered lost since no recording survives.
He wrote, along with Dan Andrei Aldea, the music for several Romanian movies, such as the cult movies Filip cel Bun (1975), Duhul Aurului (1974) and Nunta de piatră (1973) (dir. by Dan Pița and Mircea Veroiu), and Ţapinarii (1982) and Lisca (1983) directed by Ioan Cărmăzan.
He also acted in some of the movies for which he wrote the music.
