Video of Talented Japanese Drummer Senri Kawaguchi Goes Viral

 

This past summer, S. White, a Taiwanese jazz drummer and street performer, stole everyone’s heart with her impressive drumming skills and adorable head-bobbing. Well, it looks like she’s not the only one gaining attention for her drumming!

A video of Senri Kawaguchi playing along to “Jinshin War” by Kawaguchi Chisato has been going viral. Many people claim she is more talented than most professional drummers and she has mastered quite a unique technique. Most impressive of all? Kawaguchi is only 16-years-old.

So how exactly does a teenager get to be so talented? Well apparently Kawaguchi was only 5-years-old when she first picked up drumsticks. By the time she was eight, she was receiving lessons from famed Japanese drummers.

Since then, she’s kept herself quite busy with her passion. She performed with rock band Nokemono before she became a teenager, landed endorsement deals with Yamaha and Zildjian, received awards in the “Rhythm & Drums Magazine” contest, appeared on a number of television shows, released her debut DVD “Horoscope,” and is currently touring with idol group E-Girls.
