7th Arena Band is an Iranian political folk/hip-hop project. I don't know a single word in Farsi, so I can't tell you what their lyrics are about, but it seems like they support the radical opposition to Ahmadinejad's regime. But even if you have absolutely no interest in the politics of Iran, you may find this album very enjoyable - especially if you like both oriental folk music and rap/hip-hop. My personal favourites are "Yadeteh" (some kind of a ballad, sounds very beautiful and not much like hip-hop) and "Boghze Sard" (more agressive stuff, really catchy).

Hope you'll enjoy this piece of rebel folk/rap music from Iran... not "Islamic Republic of Iran", just Iran. I have one more album by 7th Arena Band, called "National Security", but I don't like it as much as this one. However, I can upload it if you're interested.
