DJ Duk Monteiro
DJ Fabinho FM(Fabian) has already been interested in different kind of music since his childhood and started in his early years with the instrument accordion, where he developed his first musical skills. 2007 Fabian came, by chance, into contact with Kizomba. On a Reggaeton sampler was a song by Gil Semedo, which fascinated him immediately and his expedition into the world of Kizomba began. His first steps as a DJ he made many years later when he started deejaying at small Salsa partys in 2012. Since the start in September 2013 he is the resident of the first weekly Kizomba party "Kizz me at the Moon!" in Berlin. Further he plays also at other parties in Berlin and nowadays he is more and more booked outside of Berlin, recently, for example, for parties in the Netherlands, Heidelberg, Nuermberg, Leipzig and for festivals in Hamburg, Geneva and Mallorca. The Kizomba community appreciates him for his hand-picked mix of traditional Kizomba and Semba, Ghetto Zouk and the latest Kizomba remixes of songs from other genres. Of course a little bit of Kuduro and Afro-House should not be missed in his playlist. Dj FabinhoFM is currently one of the most in-demand Kizomba DJs in Berlin. People like him behind the deck as a DJ, but also on the dancefloor as a dancer. FabinhoFM is looking forward to see you at Kizomba Berlinal!
Get ready to party and enjoy!
