Parviz Sedighi Parsi, known as Yahaghi, was born in Tehran In 1936. Yahaghi started his music career under the supervision of his uncle, Hussein Yahaghi. Since his uncle, Hussein Yahaghi, was a well-known person among the Iranian artists, lots of great musicians of his time would gather at his home from time to time.
This gave Parviz a very golden opportunity to meet the top Iranian musicians like Ostad Abul Hassan Saba, Reza Mahjubi, Shahnazi, Tehrani, Zelli, Ney Davoud and others at his uncle’s house. There is no doubt that these meetings were his big inspiration to turn him into one of the best musicians of the history of Iran.
His first performance for children on radio proved his success.
His ability in playing violin made him one of the best in Iran. His presence in a program called Golha (before the revolution) introduced a new era and made his works everlasting. He married Homeira (Homeyra) but they divorced later. A combination of Yahaghi’s violin and Homeira’s voice has been remained one of the best in its kind.
