Saori Sugimoto


I am Saori Sugimoto. I live in Japan.

This is my fourth time participating in the hit like a girl contest.
I always look forward to this contest where I can meet many inspiring and wonderful performances every year.

I started playing the drums when I was 14 years old.
I was doing my homework listening to music.
Somehow, the beat of the drum that came into my ears, was impressive.
I didn’t know anything about drums at that time, but I started tapping my limbs like a drummer.
It was very fun! It was an exciting experience!
I was fascinated to drums by that experience, then studied many music videos, and started drumming by self-learning.

My drum policy is “Smile, Happy and Emotional”.
I hope you enjoy it with my drums.

Thank you,
