Kōkako Drums

Kia Ora! I am Kōkako Drums, and I’m a drummer from New Zealand. I’ve only been playing for 5 years, but have found that drumming is something that I’m very passionate about. Consequently I have decided to study music at university with the hopes that I can turn it into a career.
When I was 4, I took up tap dancing which helped to develop my interest in rhythm. Eventually I started taking part in musical theatre, as well as competing in tap competitions which I still love doing. A couple of years ago I was given the opportunity to combine these interests and drum for some musical theatre shows in my city, and I’m keen to do this more frequently.
Although I love musical theatre, the genre I most enjoy drumming is metal, and Danny Carey is one of my biggest progressive metal drumming inspirations. I decided I wanted to give learning Rosetta Stoned a go as it’s been one of my dream songs to play for a while, and it’s been so much fun to learn, as well as put together and edit.
Good luck to all of the other contestants, I’m looking forward to seeing everyone’s videos!
