My name is Nikoleta and I am 15 years old. I have been playing drums since I was 9 years old. When I first sat down for the drums I understood that me and the drums belonged to each other. Since then, when I’m not sick, I play drums every day. After two years of playing drums I signed up for Czech Slovak Got Talent contest to try out what it’s like to stand on stage and play for people. I really liked that feeling and I put everything I could put into my play after two years of playing the drums. And the spectators liked it so much that I won this competition.
I entered to this HLAG contest mainly to show you that the drums and I belong together and I belong on the stage. It’s important to keep working and improving but the most important thing is to enjoy playing and pass it on to others. I’ve been thinking for a long time about what song I’ll present on this contest. I play songs from Dream Theater, which are technically quite demanding and I learned a lot from them. I also play songs from Metallica and other various world bands which are very popular but I decided to choose a song that was rearranged and played by my native piano virtuoso Jozef Hollý. Since there are no drums in the original song it allowed me to create and put my perception of music into this song. Among my songs on my YT channel you will find mainly rock songs but sometime you will also find classic songs in which I put my own drums. I want to move my drumming and start creating on my own. I don’t want to play only songs by others but also start work on my own manuscript. I hope that musicians will come to my life with whom I will be able to create and share music on stage together with the audience.
