Rock Me in Iranian: Khak and "Aghaz (The Beginning)"
Today's random tune is by Iranian band Khak, located in Cologne, Germany. The name of the band means "earth" or "soil," and was formed by Iranian expatriates in Heidelberg in 1995 and released their debut album in 1999. First formed as a classical rock band singing in Farsi, they moved beyond and became a pioneering force in the Iranian rock music movement of the early 1990s. This song, Aghaz (The Beginning), can be found on their 2011 album The Beginning (Aghaz).
