Cyrus Farivar profiles an underground Iranian rock band that is using the Internet as a primary means for getting its music into Iran.
The Iranian rock band ï¿½Kioskï¿½ got started in 2003 in Tehran. But the authorities did not take kindly to the group's irreverent lyrics. The leader of ï¿½Kioskï¿½ moved to San Fransisco in 2005. His four bandmates soon left Iran too for San Fransisco and Toronto. ï¿½Kioskï¿½ is now reaching appreciative audiences around the world, including Iran. Cyrus Farivar caught up with the band in Cologne, Germany.
