82-year-old DJ granny amuses pub hoppers of Japan
No one proves the saying, ‘age is just a number’ more than Sumiko Iwamuro. She is an 82-year-old DJ from Japan. By day, she runs a Chinese restaurant. By night she turns into DJ Sumirock and spins records at clubs. She only took up turntables in her 70s after choosing music at her son’s birthday party. She then spent a year learning the tricks of the trade at a school for disc jockeys before taking her skills to the dance floor. There are no signs that she’s stopping anytime soon. her dream is to debut on the New york club scene.
