Sumiko Iwamuro is an 82-year old Japanese dumpling-making techno DJ

Word has been spreading of an underground talent named Sumiko Iwamuro, an 82-year old woman living in Japan who spends her days running a dumpling restaurant and her nights DJing techno at DecaBarz and superclubs around the country.

The nightlife sensation, who’s spent the last 60 years making gyoza for her patrons, started mixing 12 years ago when her son needed some music for his birthday party.

Iwamuro, who goes by the moniker Sumirock, describes her style as “fundamentally techno” with garnishes of “jazz, French chanson and a bit of classical music”.
