At 82 years old, the Japanese woman Seiko Iwamuro Aka DJ Sumirock can say she has lived twice. While being the owner of a restaurant specialize in Gyozas (chicken ravioli) for 50 Years, she decided, at the age of 70, to invest the Tokyo’s nightlife. Today, she works in her restaurant during the day and at night make the rounds in one of the hottest nightclubs in Tokyo.
After the death of her husband, she discovered her passion for techno mix after having to choose music for her son’s birthday and she spent a year in a special school to learn how to become DJs. She now spins the tables at the DecabarZ, a crazy club owned by a Frenchman Adrien the Dane, located in the heart of Shinjuku, the trendy district of Tokyo. Its vibe is techno music with a hint of Jazz mixed with French songs and classical music. For her, working in a Gyoza restaurant or be on the stage is rigorously identical: an energy that goes beyond the age!
