music news 14/06/2018

While we at The Sound may have been listening to "Good Times Bad Times" for almost half a century, things are a little different in Japan.

Meet 8 year old Yoyoka Soma, who is raised by music-loving parents. She started learning drums at the age of only 2 years old and began performing at concerts two years later.

Expressing that John Bonham as one of her favourite drummers, she did a splendid job at covering "Good Times Bad Times", nailing the tricky skipping kick-drums part in the verse of the song.

The above video was filmed as an entry for 'Hit Like A  Girl' a global drumming contest for female percussionists.

Yoyoka covered the song with so much joy, it is almost as if she could play it with her eyes closed and smiling. 

Full with passion and determination, she wishes to be the best female drummer in Japan, possibly in the world.

Maybe, just maybe... She could be the very next John Bonham of Japan.
