Pop Singer Arrested as Political Prisoner in Iran

One of the political prisoners currently held in Iran after the recent protests. Hossein Zaman, an Iranian pop singer who was previously a member of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard and has received little attention as a singer outside of Iran. This video is from 2007 and is called "Parandeh" which means "bird" in Farsi. Zaman is evidently identified as a long-term reformer within Iran and thus a target for arrest after the recent demonstrations.

Thanks for stopping by. Sorry for the long absences. Life seems to have a habit of happening a lot lately. Come back again soon.
