In May 2009, Sulumi is voted the no. 7 coolest rock star in Beijing by Timeout Beijing Magazine. It takes real gumption to amble onto a stage in front of hundreds of people with little more than a Game Boy, but Sulumi manages to create music that stands up no matter what it’s played on, and rock out while he’s at it.
