Đogani (formerly known as Đogani Fantastiko and Giogani Fantastico) is a Serbian folk-pop and dance duo popular in ex-Yugoslavia. The duo consists of Đorđe “Đole” Đogani (Serbian Cyrillic: Ђорђе „Ђоле“ Ђогани), and his wife, Vesna Trivić - Đogani (Весна Тривић - Ђогани).

Đorđe Ðogani was born as Hamit Ðogaj (Albanian: Hamit Gjogaj; Serbian Cyrillic: Хамит Ђогај) on 1 July in Mirijevo, Belgrade, Serbia, then Yugoslavia. He was raised in the town of Mirijevo (a suburb of Belgrade) together with four brothers and four sisters. Ðole has represented SFR Yugoslavia in Athletics during his time with “Crvena Zvezda Athletic club” from 1976 to 1982. He lived in Zagreb for seven years. Later he changed his name to Đorđe, according to his nickname derived from his surname, “Đole”. At the same time, he also changed his last name from Ðogaj to Ðogani. He is an ethnic Ashkali, an Albanian-speaking Gypsy (Roma), and he also had many problems in speaking literary Serbian correctly, as opposed to his younger brothers and sisters. Therefore, he is well known for some sentences taken from Belgrade slang, and misuse of noun cases. His 3 younger brothers also had successful careers in dance music, leading the dance-oriented bands, like Funky G, B3 and Trik FX.
