Sidewalk DJ Becomes A Hit In Saigon

The motorbike karaoke singers and Michael Jackson impersonators have run into some stiff competition in the form of sexy sidewalk DJs, reports Zing.

One such DJ is 19-year-odl Phạm Thị Kim Chi who mans the decks at a popular outdoor lemon tea cafe on Bình Thạnh District’s Phạm Văn Đồng Street.

Chi, who goes by handle Chipin, plays at the café every night from 7:30pm – 10:30pm.

While Chipin says that took the gig as a way to practice, rather than for the money, the job has its challenges. She is hit on constantly, faces prejudices surrounding female DJs and must play her tracks at moderate volume as to not disturb local residents.

It’s certainly an interesting trend but I hope the music isn’t restricted to Viethouse.
