Across China, middle-aged and older women gather in the early hours of the morning or late in the afternoon in public parks and squares to dance together to Chinese music. Famously called ‘dancing grannies’, these women gather play loud music, China and dance to celebrate their ‘cultural revolution’. But this unison has now become a problem for the locals China, who complain that their music is ‘too loud’. Talking about the device, a local said on one on Taobao, China’s version of eBay, Downstairs is finally quiet. For two days the grannies China thought their speaker is not working!
