Abdusalam Ablimit is a newcomer in the German Rap Scene with the stage name “Salam Monaco".
Salam debuted with his single “Bombay“ in April last year and came back with his single “Flightmode“ in April 2020. He just recently released a song called “Wave”. Congrats! You can stream it on Apple Music, Youtube & more.
The Ürümqi born rapper came to Germany with his mother when he was just five years old. He was introduced to music at a very young age, as his mother plays the dutar and his siblings play a variety of musical instruments and sing as well.
Music however is not his only passion. Salam followed his interest for lyrical poetry like poems, poetry slams, as well as writing socio-critical texts long before he started producing music.
Salam strives to include his Uyghur roots in his music by cooperating with many other talented Uyghur artists like Xay and Lil Azizi, who have also worked on his songs “Vibe“ and “Jinjudun“, of which the latter has almost 60,000 streams on Spotify. Together they are known as the Uyggez among the youth in Germany’s Uyghur diaspora.
Alongside singing, rapping and producing music, Salam currently is studying industrial engineering but strives to make it big in the music industry one day. His advice is to always keep focused, follow your dreams, and never forget where you came from!
We are looking forward to hearing more from you in the future and wish you all the best!
