The flood levee in the Victorian town of Echuca couldn’t protect every home in town. Jemima Lewis and James Hayes are among the unlucky ones on the ‘wet’ side of the dirt wall. But Lewis – AKA DJ Jemima – has helped lift the spirits of her neighbours by spitting some tunes for the street, half of which is under water.
DJ Jemima’s husband Hayes posted on the community page for everyone to come down. ‘She’s a weapon,’ he says. ‘She does some pretty good gigs actually. She was at [music festival] Groovin the Moo, now she’s at the floods.’
