Ksenia Samoilova

Hi, my name is Ksenia. I am 28 years old. I have been playing drums for 11 years. I started when I was 17 and got involved into it so much, which was unexpectedly. I was suppose to be a civil engineer but became a professional drummer. 4 years ago I came to Dubai to work as a session drummer. Since that time I live here. I was influenced by Mike Portnoy, Benny Greb, Adam Marko, Steve Gadd and others. I adore odd time signatures. I do play mostly in genres like metal, pop, rock, progressive rock. Something aggressive, tough and energetic. I believe that playing drums in the Middle East inspires women to be free doing what they want. To not be afraid of stereotypes and stigmatization. I love drums and to share my experience with people. We, girls, can be super-strong!
