The first Emirati rock artist, Bafoory brings a unique cultural twist to western dominated Rock music. Oozing talent from every aspect, Bafoory is a multi-instrumentalist as well as a multilingual singer English, Arabic and Hindi. Bafoory has been in music since fifteen and has been sharing his music since 2013.
Bafoory's EP , “Fall and Rise” was released in December of 2018. The fourth track of the EP is titled, “Nicotine”. "Nicotine" gives the listener a glimpse of what Bafoory is about musically with his unique cool style. Moody guitar licks and classic rhythms and twangiest of acoustic guitars, saturated with a hard percussion line bring this track together. Almost on the lines of grunge/rock, Bafoory brings his melodic, yet gritty vocals which intensifies along with the track. This may sound like a class rock genre track, but we later see the transition. The instrumentalization of the track is set equal to the vocals which emphasizes the emotion. Bafoory's song "Nicotine" is completely solid in itself and seems to have a thematic element of the twangy acoustic guitars. "Nicotine" will definitely lead way for inspiration to artists to create something real and raw.

Hi Bafoory! Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
My name is Mohammad Bafoory. I'm 25 years and I am the first local Emirati Rock Artist in the United Arab Emirates.
Can you give us a brief history of your musical career?
I started playing music at the age of 14 starting with piano and then guitar both acoustic, electric and bass and then drums in 2013.
Do you write your own music? Can you tell us a bit about your writing style?
I do write my own music composing them and structuring them. My writing style I would say its more of direct and sometimes i use metaphor and its very deep connected with real human emotions where people can relate to it on a very deep level.
We dig the new song! Can you tell us a bit about it?
Nicotine is the most heard song on my album and I think because the riff in the song is very addictive to one’s ears and in this song I’ve used metaphor where I have described love in form of addiction which is Nicotine.
Where did the inspiration behind the song come from?
To be honest there wasn’t any inspiration behind it when I started writing it, it just came out of me in one go lyric wise but to structure it well it took me 4 years and its long time but its worth the time and effort because it became somehow a hit in our local music scene area.
What are three things you’d love your fans to know about you?
I want them to know that I am the only local Emirati Rock solo Artist and I am write songs for the people to help them get through tough times and I’ll always be committed to that. 3rd That I can sing and write songs in 3 different languages.
What’s next for you in 2019?
My plans for this year is to perform every where as much as I can, till now I have gigs to play from January till early April. And to release the official music video for Nicotine which is already in post production. And the big final thing is to release my 2nd Album by June.
