Hengameh is an Iranian pop music artist based in Los Angeles. She was born in Lahijan but was brought up in Tehran. She is considered 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.
Hengameh enjoyed the support of her family and friends, as she grew older. Throughout her school years, she participated in numerous local and regional talent contests and always managed to come first amongst her peers. She always dreamt of becoming a professional singer after finishing high school, but this dream could never be fulfilled for as long as the changes that were imposed by the new Islamic Republic government were there to stay. After finishing high school, Hengameh married and soon after, she gave birth to her only child, her daughter, but never stopped thinking about her life long dream of becoming a singer. Hengameh eventually realized that she had no choice but to leave her beloved homeland and migrate abroad if she was ever to pursue her dream.
In 1992, Hengameh moved to Vancouver, Canada with her husband and daughter. In Vancouver, she first met Ali Elahi (keyboard player), and Fereydoon (singer), and through them she was introduced to Kamran (singer), and Ramin Zamani (Song writer, producer). In 1995 Hengameh, Fereydoon, and Kamran started to work on a collaborative effort with Ramin Zamani. They produced their first single titled, “Iranam”, which was about to gain much popularity for the three singers in a very short period of time. Their popularity was now extended beyond Vancouver, and the larger Iranian population in Los Angeles was suddenly interested in their talent.
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 carrier. 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 carrier. 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.
