Behind the decks her grey hair is backlit by laser lights. She whoops at the crowd and the dancing masses go wild! They can’t get enough of DJ Mammabearsteffs. It was to honour her late son's dream of becoming a professional DJ that Joy Steffens decided on a life spinning the decks. Dylan died of cancer in 2016, just as he was about to go to music school. Now 62 years old, music is helping Joy heal and stay connected with her son – while also propelling her into a new, loud life. And, to her surprise, audiences have embraced her. Carte Blanche meets Joy as she gets onto the big stage at the annual H2O Party with its thousands of partygoers. At a time when her peer group is planning the end of their careers, Joy is at the beginning of a whole new one. How do we keep learning and living passionately over 60?
