Parvaneh Amir-Afshari (Persian: پروانه امير افشاری; born March 17, 1945), also known by her stage name Homeyra (Persian: حميرا), is an Iranian singer. She is a veteran celebrity of golden age for Iranian music.
Parvaneh Amir-Afshari was born on March 17, 1945, to an Aristocratic-Iranian family in Tabriz, East Azerbaijan Province, Iran. As a child, she was not allowed to sing in front of non-family members. She started to study Persian vocal music secretly under Ali Tajvidi.
"Sabram Ata Kon" was Homeyra's first song which was written by Ali Tajvidi and was broadcast from Radio Tehran in the mid.-1960s.
At age 16, Homeyra married a German-educated Iranian businessman, who encouraged her to sing professionally. She started taking music lessons and voice training courses.
Homeyra's second marriage was to the Iranian musician, Parviz Yahaghi. In early 2007, Yahaghi died in Iran. After Yahaghi's death in February 2007, she has experienced heart problems which required surgery.
Few years after the Islamic Revolution in Iran Homeyra fled to the United States, and currently resides there.
