Ballgard Rock and Funk Brace yourself! Iranian underground music is taking you for a wild ride! If Frank Zappa was from Iran and he was in his 20's, he would create a band like Ballgard. This four man band from Iran blows you away and at the same time puts a dent in all stereotypes about Iran. Ballgard draws from the musical styles of Funk, Hard Rock and Iranian Folk music themes. At times they remind you of Red Hot Chilli Peppers or Prodigy but they have their own unique sound and style. Add bold, imaginative lyrics that may be suitable for 18+ and reflective of everyday life of the Iranian urban youth to this funky music and you've got an Iranian Funk band that is here to stay. The band members have been playing together since high school days but Ballgard was formed four years ago. Zigiland is their debut album out of Iran that will change your impression of Iranian Rock forever.
