Ahmad Zahir (Persian: احمد ظاهر‎, 14 June 1946 – 14 June 1979) was a singer, songwriter, and composer from Afghanistan. His songs are mostly in the Dari (Persian) language and are based on Persian poetry, although a few are also in Pashto. Zahir was the first and only true mega superstar in Afghanistan as his appeal crossed all boundaries of age, class, language, and regions. Besides being a pioneer of rock and pop music in Afghanistan, in a similar style to Elvis Presley, he experimented and performed almost all styles of music, including Indian classical music, Iranian, Qarsak, Qataghani and Logari. Among Afghans, he is considered an icon of Afghan music and is widely regarded as the "King of Afghan music" or the "Elvis of Afghanistan", and reclaims immortal fame due to his contributions and influence on music in Afghanistan.
