Fabiola Morales Monje, MA Music and Management
A Columbian native, I recently completed an MA in Music and Management at the University.
Leeds is an impressive city. Its cultural and artistic scene is endless and unpredictable, giving rise to an absolutely fascinating variety of extremely high quality and unique artists. The University of Leeds occupies an extremely convenient location and the campus is full of interesting and useful places. All staff are friendly, charismatic and always available to help students with any enquires. I was impressed by the outstanding professional profile of staff members and the extent to which they are committed to the learning process of each and every student. The technology and recording and practice facilities available to music students are wonderful.
Currently, I am working as the executive producer of Kilombo Studios in Bogota, Colombia. I previously worked as a self-employed PR and booking agent of emerging, independent Colombian bands, of which three that I represented were selected to participate in BOmm (Bogota Music Market), hosted by CCB (Chamber of Commerce of Bogota) and manager Fernan Martinez.
I have organised several concerts performing as a solo vocalist, in addition to recording several advertising jingles. I have also participated as a showgirl on reality TV shows including The Voice and The X Factor. I also have experience as a voluntary PR co-ordinator; managing digital social media, recording and photography of live performances and interviews of the independent Colombian band Profetas at the 2015 Glastonbury Music Festival.
