Meet Yoyoka Soma.  She’s only eight, and she can drum like John Bonham!

Soma entered the drum contest “Hit Like A Girl” with an incredible drum cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Good Times, Bad Times,” and she’s absolutely incredible!  You almost forget she’s a child until you reach the very end of the video where she finishes the song and just erupts in a whimsical giggle.

If she’s only eight and can play like that, we can’t wait to see what the future holds for her!

『Hit Like A Girl Contest 2018』Good Times Bad Times - LED ZEPPELIN / Cover by Yoyoka , 8 year old drummer

My name is Yoyoka Soma. I am 8 year old Japanese drummer. When I was a just small baby, my parents had a home studio and there were various kinds of instruments. My parents were performing music activities as amateur singer-songwriters and they cradled me with their music.
