Zolaykha Sherzad was born in Kabul, Afghanistan where she lived until the age of ten. When the Soviets invaded in 1979, Zolaykha and her family were forced to flee and settled as political refugees in Switzerland.
Trained as an architect, Zolaykha received her Masters in Architecture from the School of Architecture at the Federal Institute of Technology.
In 2000, she founded School of Hope, a non-profit organization that has successfully rebuilt and supported primary and secondary schools in rural Afghanistan.
In 2004, she started Zarif Design (Zarif means “precious” in Farsi) to help revive the Afghan artistic culture.
Today Zarif Design employs 50 Afghan women and men who, from their homes and one workshops in the old city of Kabul, revive traditional Afghan textiles and create strikingly unique and magnificently finished jackets and coats.

Awarded the World Cinema Dramatic Screenwriting prize at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. Following the screening, Leeza Ahmady and Mariam Ghani join Akram in a discussion about filmmaking in Afghanistan, as well as the historic context and themes of cinema from the region. Program concludes with a reception and exhibition viewing of No Country: Contemporary Art for South and Southeast Asia.
Set against the dramatic landscape of contemporary Afghanistan and the National sport of Buzkashi – a brutal game of horse polo played with a dead goat – “Buzkashi Boys” is a ground-breaking narrative film about two best friends, a charismatic street urchin and a defiant blacksmith’s son, who strive to realize their dreams as they make their way to manhood in one of the most war-torn countries on Earth. Shot entirely on location in Kabul by an alliance of Afghan and international filmmakers, “Buzkashi Boys” is a heart-rending look at the life that continues beyond the headlines of war in Afghanistan. Directed by Sam French

The rubab, also known as “the lion of instruments” is a short necked, double chambered lute and the national instrument of Afghanistan. The body is carved out of a single wood, with a membrane covering the hollow bowl of the sound-chamber, upon which the bridge is positioned. It has three melody strings tuned infourths, three drone strings and 11 or 12 sympathetic strings. The instrument is made from the trunk of a mulberry tree, the head from an animal skin such as a goat skin, and the melody strings from either gut or nylon.
