Adalita Srsen (pronounced “Ser-sun”) is an Australian rock musician, known best as a founding member of rock band Magic Dirt.

Early life and childhood: Srsen was born in Geelong, Australia on 25 February 1971. She told Rolling Stone magazine in 2003 that her father, a Croatian cabaret performer, named her after a Spanish song. Generally, Srsen prefers not to talk openly about her childhood and early life to the press, but has on occasion revealed minor details of her childhood, such as her parents’ divorce when she was two years old. The track, “These Drugs Are Really Starting To Fuck Me Over” from Magic Dirt’s 1998 album Young & Full Of The Devil is allegedly about her father. In her essay printed in Kathey Bail’s 1996 book, DIY Feminism, Srsen revealed that “I come from an all-female family (my father left my mother, my sister and me when I was two years old - what an arsehole) and I listened to and idolised female pop stars from the 1980s, such as Kate Bush, Debbie Harry, Stevie Nicks and Chrissie Hynde.. She told Triple J’s Richard Kingsmill in 2000 that she made her first guitar out of cardboard and wool, before her mother bought her her first acoustic guitar. “After persuading my Mum to buy me a guitar, I learnt a few chord progressions from a music book and then started writing and recording very strange songs, using two tapedecks and layering guitar parts and vocal harmonies.” She told Kingsmill that she is of Croatian descent, although she had not, at that time, visited the country. « hide
