Hayma Ne Win (Burmese: ဟေမာနေဝင်း, pronounced: [hèmà nè wɪ́ɴ]; commonly spelt Haymar Ne Win or Haymar Nay Win) is a Burmese singer who was popular during the late 1980s and early 1990s. She is considered one of the most successful singers of her generation, releasing over 25 albums since her debut.[1] She began her singing career by making appearances on stage shows with Thein Tan's band LPJ, eventually singing songs written by Kaiser and Thukhamein Hlaing, such as "Butterfly" (လိပ်ပြာ) and "Where Does Love Start?" (အချစ်ကဘယ်ကစ).

Ne Win comes from a well known artistic family. She is the daughter of two-time Myanmar Academy Award winning Kawleikgyin Ne Win, and the younger sister of famous actor Yaza Ne Win and a first cousin of Eindra Kyaw Zin, one of the most successful models and leading ladies of Burmese cinema. Her maternal grandfather was Bo Zeya, one of the Thirty Comrades that founded the modern Burmese Army in 1941.
