Iranian popular music
I just found this interesting article (April 22, 2007) from Martin Hodgson about the popular music scene in Iran. I've not heard the bands discussed here--but I've been able to find music from rock band O-Hum (available from emusic for listening and downloading), rap band Hich Kas (download here), and folk singer Mohsen Namjoo. I figure it's something we need to pay attention to, since we may be at war with the country soon. And an alternative image of Iran to circulate.
