Safvat was born on November 28, in ShirazPersia present-day Iran. He received a B. Over the course of his distinguished career, he held many key posts in academia and the music scene, among them a Fellow at The Academy of Sciences, the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Safvat died on April 17, in Karaj, Iran from natural causes. Safvat is best known for his mastery of Setar and Santour.
He began learning to play the Setar at an early age from his father, Ali Asghar Jameh-darân - Dariush Talai* - Radif - Volume IV , who also played the ancient instrument. Safvat himself claims the person who had the most influence on his life and music was Ostad Elahia Persian judge, philosopher, theologian and master musician.
Safvat has published a number of books and articles in Persian, French and English, and has produced a large number of recordings, but what is most remarkable is the degree to which his humanity, piety and integrity have made him popular among both the music elite and the masses alike.
