My name is Avelyn Caban drumming out of San Diego, Ca. I was born in El Paso, Tx and have lived in Guam, Florida, Virginia, & California. My passion for drumming started when I was 5 years old after sitting behind my dad’s drum set for the first time. I began lessons two years later and started playing songs by Led Zeppelin and Bryan Adams. At the age of 13, I picked up an interest in modern hard rock bands like Volbeat, Avenged Sevenfold, and Bullet For My Valentine. This year, I auditioned for and made the high school swing choir band and started playing jazz-style drums. My goals are to improve my jazz drumming and to learn mambo and latin percussion. This is my third time competing in the Hit Like A Girl competition and I am very grateful for the opportunity to not only showcase my skills but to also share my passion with the world.
