With the exponential growth of EDM music in India, DJ-ing has now become a lucrative career option for people.
Telling your parents that you want to become a DJ for life isn't met with the same amount of ' DJ, what the hell is a DJ?! Meri naak kata ke rakhega! Chal padhai kar!' as it did about 10 years ago.
However, the profession is still a male-dominated and like other occupations in India, women tend to lag behind in number, fame, money and opportunity.
Nonetheless, these female DJs have broken barriers, standing shoulder-to-shoulder with their male counterparts, belting out tracks and bringing the house down all over the country.
Watching her brother listen to Michael Jackson and Madonna gave Paroma an idea as to what music was and she kicked it to high gear by taking up DJing.

Her strengths are club house, hip hop, deep and tech house and she learned under the best - DJ Bob Omulo. Her happiness comes from watching the audience scream for more when she plays.

Her music is classy, chic and gets people on the dance floor to move their body all night long.
