The band Khak (XAK) revolves around the singer, songwriter and guitarist Shahriar Khatam. Band History
In 1995 three Iranian musicians living in Germany founded the band "Khak": Shahriar Khatam (Vocals, Guitars)
Afshin Tahmasebi (Keyboards, Guitars)
Khodayar Bahmani (Drums)
The guys had already known each other for a couple of years and had played together in other bands. Khak's primary goal was to change and improve contemporary Iranian music with a mature and elegant blend of Oriental and Western music (pop, rock) - making Khak a world music band.
