Das ist die 8-jährige Yoyoka Soma. Sie lebt in Japan und findet es offensichtlich ziemlich geil, Schlagzeug zu spielen. Das kann sie auch mehr als gut, wie sie hier zu Led Zeppelins „Good Times, Bad Times“ beeindruckend hinter ihrer Schießbude beweist. Und bei dem Gewitter zwischen den Becken hat sie Riesenspaß. Mein Lieber Scholli!
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. When I listened to their songs and guitar performances, I was eager to join them and couldn’t stop beating out a rhythm. That was why I started playing the drums. The drum was the first instrument in which I felt an interest in my life. My parents’ music peers often visited us to play together. I was glued to the powerful and dynamic performances by the drummers. At age 2, I was playing the drums as if I were playing with toys. At age 4, I started performing at concerts. At age 5, my family band “Kaneaiyoyoka” was formed by my parents. We have released 2 self-produced CD albums so far. Not only the drums, I also play the keyboard and perform as a vocalist. I compose lyrics and music as well.
