Dr. Pipes,

Very interesting.

There is a Semitic root ز-م-ر and ܙ-ܡ-ܪ in Syriac/Aramaic (compare with Hebrew זַמָּר Zammar) and it is related to music/singing and in Arabic زمارة also مزمار means: "pipe or flute like instrument made of cane or wood."

Notice that the Aramaic ܙܡܪܐ mean: singer, musician, psalmist.

Check the following:
