For the first edition of “Talks” a series of informal conversations with people that inspire us, we speak with Lotta Lavanti aka. Medium-Sized-Daddy, a Copenhagen-based creative and trail-blazing woman. - With tracks that Lotta is listening to while strolling through the busy streets of Copenhagen. If you ever wondered what kind of music a professional chameleon would listen to in the past month and would make her groove like a fleuve, this is it."
How did your love story with Copenhagen start?
Lotta Lavanti: It was not. *laughs* Basically, I ended up in Copenhagen, because I had previously studied at a university in London. Then, my sister who was living in Copenhagen at the time told me to come and study there. At that point, I thought ‘'What do I have to lose?’’. So I moved to Denmark and ended up in Herning, not Copenhagen (which is about 3 hours away, almost in the middle of nowhere). But then eventually, I came to Copenhagen and ‘'settled'' for it, but now I have grown to love it.
Tom àdam: There is a jukebox on the street - what song would you choose to play and what would be the signature dance move you would accompany it with?
Lotta: I guess if I were to put something on it would have to be This Must Be the Place by Talking Heads. And my signature dance moves are just Mister Beans dance moves, kind of like a white dad at a barbecue.
Tom àdam: What’s on your reading list at the moment?
Lotta: Actually, I really want to read Crazy Rich Asians, but the second book of the series. I think it’s called Crazy Rich Girlfriend. I love fiction and I love shopping,
