Vigen or Viguen, born Vigen Derderian (Persian: ویگن دردریان ; Armenian: Վիգեն Դէրդէրեան) (November 23, 1929 - October 26, 2003), known as "Sultan of Pop" and "Sultan of Persian jazz", was an immensely popular Iranian pop music singer and actor, well-known throughout the Near East.

Vigen was of Armenian ethnicity and during his era until the 1978 Islamic revolution, many Iranian performers and celebrities—among them Delkash, Pouran, and Elaheh—yearned to be associated with him.

Vigen's innovative and upbeat style of music had a great influence on paving the way for a new genre of Iranian music, influenced by Western European and Latin American styles. His musical and performing talents soon captured the attention of many prominent Iranian lyricists and composers such as Parveez Vakili and Kareem Fakkour, and together they created some of Iran's most memorable songs.- WIKIPEDIA
