“Here, in Ferentari, is easy to be influenced/ But I go my way, no their way” – Mario Fabrika, a young man of 17 years old who firmly believes in his artistic star.

Mario Răducanu, or Mario Fabrika, is an artist from Ferentari at the beginning of his career. He discovered the passion for music while trying various sports and realized his scope in life are actually lyrics and sounds.

His biography is a complicated one, with no difference from any other young man in Ferentari, but this did not make Mario give up his dream that one day he will be able to help himself and others. Despite the artistic success that he is dreaming about, Mario intends to remain modest and oriented to social volunteering.
