Ahmad Zahir (احمد ظاهر) was an Afghan singer, songwriter, composer, and musician.
Born on June 14th 1946, Ahmad Zahir is probably the most famous celebrity of Afghanistan- often referred to as “the Elvis Presley of Afghanistan” not just because of his sideburns, good looks and charisma, both on and off-stage, but also because, like Elvis, he came into a music industry, and left it completely changed forever.
Though his career was short, his discography and influence over Afghan music and the hearts of Afghans the world over has been timeless.
“The Lost Mother” is a compelling story of a single mother (Zohra) who fights to survive in a patriarchal society as her husband abandons his responsibilities to indulge himself in a life of intoxication and addiction.
