they play music as if there is something at stake

The Impossible Music Sessions are evenings of an American band covering the music of foreign band which is cannot appear for political reasons - they are not allowed to travel by their government for example. The first band to be covered is Iran's The Plastic Wave (their website is down, but for reference it is here. Myspace. You Tube.) The second band is Guinea Bissau's Baloberos Crew which Impossible Music describes as "a group of hip hop artists who have faced intimidation by the military police because their lyrics are critical of the government." (limited information on the Impossible Music site here) Via All Things Considered.

This is an awesome idea, thanks for posting this. I had no idea there were underground music festivals in Iran.
