Episode #21

fourth season down the line and what a start. i'm joined by a unique friend, a femme extraordinaire who has been in the spotlight over the last years for a few good reasons.  a musician leaving in Athens Giganta studied classical music since the age of 12, and continued as a piano & flute player.  she has participated in classical choirs as a singer, performed with a woodwind band for 2 years, explored jazz music with different bands, played as a keyboardist in many alternative indie bands, and finished her studies as a music teacher. she has been introduced in the dance scene as Manekinekod back in 2008, followed by the project Magnitophono with noumerous releases and collaborations to date. an RBMA participant in Madrid 2011, nowadays she appears under the Giganta moniker, performing live on various venues in the Greek capital while developing her mixing skills as part of the Rotation roster and throwing unique sets on special
one off events. if all the above is not enough, Giganta is also involved in making sound installations for Reactify Music for i-phone and i-pad.

we spent quite some time together lately on vacation where i got her unique vibe and deep love for music, plus her recent performances have been top notch so i had to bring her in to do this seasons opening show....and i have to say, she's definately coming back in the future.. catch her Madly Radio Show Thursdays (20:00-22:00) on Paranoiseradio .
