Djemila’s confidence, however, is a singular kind, relegated to those who define their own standards and steadfastly pursue them, irrespective of (in)congenial responses. At age 16, she left the lower middle class suburb of Minguettes, Lyon, and fled to Paris ; within 2 years, Djemila’s attraction to music and night life culture led to a DJ residency at La Main Bleue, the most famously exclusive disco in Europe, and precur- sor to the legendary Palace disco.
