The music-video illustrates well why the Iranian nation, the Iranian people is probably the most stable nation in the world.
The Iranian documentary filmmaker Hossein Dehbashi has produced a music video.
It consists of excerpts from President Rohanis inaugural address, which is repeated and sung by some famous singers and actors.
In addition there are excerpts from historical quotations, such as by Ayatollah Khomeini, Mohammad Mossadegh and the Persian poet Hafez, from which the name of the video comes from, 'Nosafar' or in English 'The traveler'.

'We have produced the video on own account', Dehbashi said to the New York Times, 'but Mr. Rohanis office has approved it'.
It can be seen on Rohanis Youtube channel, linked on his Twitter account and is also shown on Rohanis website. (translated by google translate)
One sign of a complete change in communication through the use of modern means.
Rohani called in his speech for a compassionate Islam, a rational Iran and a kindly establishment.
The video makes the demands now voices and faces and suggests that Rohani as president does not legitimize his actions by the opinions of the religious scholars of the Islamic Republic, but from the Iranian traditions and the population.
The creator of the video, Hossein Dehbashi, spent two months in the Supermax prison in Baltimore, USA.
He was interrogated by the FBI for his residence permit, although he himself says, there were political reasons.
Dehbashi has also produced the election campaign videos of President Rohani.
Quote from a commentator:
'This is the true face of Iran. A peace-loving nation that is against extremism and moves towards greater democracy and culture; The Presidency of Dr. Rohani is the result of the election of the Iranian nation: a step to a brighter future :)'
There are other signs of liberalization in The Iran.
President Rohani has kept its election promise to loosen the dress code for women.
He has the moral police (Gashte Ershad) taken away the power about how women dress like in public and to complain.
The head of the Iranian police, Ismail Ahmadi Moghaddam - confirmed the subject how women and men dress is not longer a matter for the law enforcers.
Inspired by the "Yes We Can" video, this piece was produced by Hossein Dehbashi for the 100th day of the Government of Prudence and Hope, featuring Hassan Rouhani's first speech as President of the Islamic Republic of Iran. This video was an initiative taken by the artists (without the President's knowledge) to immortalize President Rouhani's emotional speech, where he expresses hope for peace, friendship and progress. Only at the later stages was the video shown to President Rouhani.
This melodic piece is the first time ever for a chorus to sing along with a formal speech by a prominent Shia cleric and high ranking Iranian politician. Featuring musical instruments on video and singing by women are prohibited by Iran's state television. The fact that President Rouhani's personal website decided to feature this video was a great and notable step to break this taboo and support Iranian artists.
To pay tribute and celebrate Iranians from all backgrounds, parts of the video are in Kurdish, Balochi, Azeri and Arabic.
