Hi, I'm Beatriz da Silvia Ferreira (but my friends call me Bibi) and I am 8 years old. When I was 4 years old I had my first contact with drums in a musical event and it was “love at first sight.” After the event I insistently asked my dad for a drum kit and he improvised one with pots and pails... and that's how my story in the world of music begins.
As soon as my parents could they gave me a real drumset. I started playing inspired by my heroes: Aquiles Prister, John Bonham, Neil Peart, Caio Cunha from the band Raimundos, Bacalhau from the band Ultraje a Rigor, Jay Weinberg, John Dolmayan, Eloy Casagrande, Tony Royster Júnior and others.
Although we don't have musicians in the family I have a lot of support from my parents. My videos became popular on social media and naturally I started to be invited for radio stations, newspapers and TV shows to talk about my passion for music. I discovered that my instrument and I are one and we could go to places I never imagined before.
I dream of being a great professional drummer and I want to represent my country around the world as a complete musician, encouraging everyone to keep believing and following their dreams. I feel like this is already happening because I get a lot of messages from many countries around the world, saying that my videos make them feel encouragement and inspiration. All that make me feel proud and happy and also makes me feel like that’s what I want for the rest of my life.
