Ovidiu Lipan 'Țăndărică' (born January 31,[1] 1953, in Iași) is a Romanian drummer.

He played between 1966 and 1975 with the Romanian rock band Roșu și Negru. In 1975 he joined Transsylvania Phoenix. In 1977 he settled in Germany, but after 1990 he moved back to Romania. Now he has solo projects and also plays with Pasarea Rock. His 2007 album Iskender, a collaboration with Stelu Enache and Gheorghe Zamfir, featured reinterpretations of traditional Macedonian songs.[2] The arrangements feature Greek, Roma, Slavic, and Celtic touches, among others, in a manner designed to reflect Romania's multiculturalism.[2] Since 2012, he has sustained a collaboration with Bosquito, appearing in their single, "Intuneric In Culori", numerous live concerts with the band, and their 2012 MTV Unplugged show.[3]

Lipan has a son, a musician who lives in Germany.[1]
