Tickets are now available to see SHARMOOFERS at The Garage!
Egyptian band founded by Musicians Ahmed Bahaa (Vocals) and Moe El-3arkan (drums and guitar), They released 3 albums throughout their musical career, 5 santy, Paranoia and Enfesam. Their unique band of comedic reggae and pop-infused rock has gained millions of views on Youtube and on social media in less than four years. Most of their popular songs are: Moftaqed El Habiba, Hazina and Arosity.
Ahmed Bahaa is on vocals/percussions, Mohamed Al Arkan on drums, and Mohamed El Farra is on bass/guitar. They’re back again with ‘Caravan’, a new album celebrating the band’s 10th anniversary.
As they entered the scene a decade ago, they stole the hearts of Egypt’s youth with ‘’Khamsa Santy’ and ‘El Boxer’. They make comedic, pop-rock-reggae-rap and Arabic fusions. Consequently, they’re one of Egypt’s biggest breakthrough stories. Multiple musicians from Egypt’s underground scene surfaced to become a leading alt-pop group in the region.
In 2015, their debut album, ‘Paranoia’ was released. Driven by percussion, vocal sketches, and a joyous big band sound, it’s packed with commentary about uncertain times beneath its happy pop surface.
Throughout the years between ‘Paranoia’ and their follow-up album ‘Enfesam’ in 2019, Sharmoofers continued to release at least one banger per year, be it the anthemic, ‘Easy Money’ or the more Shaabi textured, ‘3eid Ra2sety’.
Moreover, in ‘Enfesam’ speaks about more serious subject matters. Themes of mental health and substance abuse. Consequently, Sharmoofers succeeds at creating songs that are at times satirical or music that is uplifting, upbeat, and hopeful.
With the lyrics written by the band’s engaging songwriter, Ahmed Bahaa, the upcoming album, ‘Caravan’ tackles themes of memory, romance, and friendship.
