Ahmad Zahir

Liz Mermin
Knows as the Elvis of Afghanistan, Ahmad Zahir died in a car crash in the 1970s, fueling decades of speculation as to what really happened. Beyond the mystery, though, Zahir's music wafts from the windows of Afghans homes around the world, helping exiles and refugees stay connected to their tortured native land - and offering a sense of identity to their children who have never seen the country from which their parents fled.
