Hengameh - Bio
Hengameh was born in Lahijaan, Iran. Together with her parents and her older sister, she moved to Tehran at age three. Ever since childhood, she had a great passion for singing and performing. Hengameh’s father was first to detect this passion. The never ending love and support of her father that was quite evident from the very early stages of Hengameh’s life further motivated and encouraged her to take music lessons with some of the masters of Persian classical music. Being a proficient ney and flute player, Hengameh’s father believed that she should learn the Persian classical music modes, “Radif” and develop a strong theoretical foundation, as he himself was very much interested and knowledgeable in this genre of music.
With further opportunities in the Los Angeles area, each singer began to pursue his/her individual careers. Although Hengameh was in touch with many producers, she remained loyal to Ramin Zamani who has had much influence on her music career. Her debut album, “Baray-e Didan-e To” was the result of a five years joint effort, which was cherished by millions across the world. This intense interest and loyal fan support paved the way for the release of a second album, “Artesh-e Solh”. The new album undoubtedly opened a new chapter in Hengameh’s singing career. A talent that was born years ago was now a dream come true. The tremendous love and support from her fans and the respect from the Iranian music society has reinforced the desire in Hengameh to press on and take steps in becoming part of a heritage, that of Iranian Music history.
