Mohammad Heidari

Mohammad Heidari (Persian: محمد حیدری‎; January 1937 – August 23, 2016) was a Persian santur player and songwriter.


After the 1979 Iranian Revolution, Mohammad Heidari left the country for Italy and a few years later moved to Los Angeles, where he continued his activities as a soloist and songwriter. Some of his nostalgic songs such as "Zahr-e Jodai" and "Bahar Bahar" (both performed by Hayedeh) became popular in the Persian community. Heyidari also has written the melody of other Persian hit songs such as Bia Benevisim and Sobhet Bekheir Azizam.


Mohammad Heyidari died from cancer in a hospital in Los Angeles on 23 August 2016, aged 79.[citation needed]
