Giovanna Takaki Bottai

My name is Giovanna Takaki Bottai (GGDrummer). You can call me GG. I am almost 17 years old and have been playing drums for 8 years. I love progressive rock and the Brazilian rhythms (samba and maracatu) that I am slowly learning. My references on the drums are John Bonham, Buddy Rich, Mike Portnoy, Mike Mangini and the incredible Neil Peart.

    Not my favorite kind of music (I like jazz/rock/funk), but I know good musicianship when I see it, and you definitely have it. Great footwork, and your timing is impeccable. You’ll go a long way.

    Gigi , what can I say! You have become one of the better drummers in your age bracket this year. Your dedication and commitment to your instrument is definitely showing. You have a very easy, smooth delivery of your creative drum beats, along with impeccable timing . The songs your choose are hard ones and you nail them with ease !
    I admire you for your superb skills, at such a young age.
    I am very proud to know you, promote and support you.

    Your best attribute however, goes way beyond your superb drumming skills. It’s the heartfelt support and encouragement you show for others. You promote, support and care more for your peers and competition, than you do yourself. This trait is very hard to find in the world of musicians.
    Good luck in this year’s contest! I got your back…. Your friend and supporter, MR Rich
