Ladydust aka Marina Tsigonaki

*By Donatella Adamou
With the ease of a chameleon, Ladydust leaps from the seventh art to the world of modeling and back to the
music console and the web as a radio producer. She describes herself as a “music narrator”.

at the University Paris 8, France,Seth Siro Anton,etc.

many year modeling career .(
Actually,her music career ,it kick started when she started touring her country as a dj.
Until today she has appeared as guest in more than 15 big cities in Greece and abroad. In big festivals
,concerning ‘indie rock scene‘ as well,which she successfully organizes herself-sometimes.Her sets are
titled: “The Art Of Modern Rock” and have become quite popular.
Prior,she was the resident DJ at Hard Rock Café and the Booze Cooperativa. The Booze Cooperative is a
well known, creative multi-art foundation in the centre of Athens.
The idea of opening new paths,though, seemed by far more charming, risky, and adventurous to her.
She’s one of the breakout female disc jockeys in the world. touring and supporting new bands
internationally and helps expanding the rock ‘n’ roll philosophy.
She’s also one of the few DJ’s in Europe who is sponsored by major North American companies such

FM. The radio show focused on an international indie rock repertoire promoting mainly new and unsigned
bands. The playlists are compiled with a ‘multinational’ gusto from the
rock n’roll galaxy all over the world. Talking about alternative scene, brit pop, garage punk, hard rock,
psychedelic, noise, shoegaze, manchester, electronic scene, classic rock, krautrock, desert rock, film
soundtracks, music from the 60’s 70’s 80’s,90’s & so, many more categories. As mentioned, there’s a
special preference to bands, coming from independent record companies, and also, very “fresh” releases.
The info of the broadcasts comes from an variety of sources and a really extensive research. Ladydust has
also invited at the studio numerous times, musicians, songwriters, artists, and other important figures from
the music industry which she interviews live.(like:’Tim Warren’ -Crypt records etc) The broadcast was
entitled:’ Tales from Planet Ladydust’.and continues on:
