Mihaela Naydenova

Hello, I'm from Sofia, Bulgaria and have been playing drums for seven years. I started playing when I was 15 as a hobby but since them I have continued to study drums in the National Music Academy.  I've been in several bands as a teenager and I currently play drums for two bands - Ember & Dust, Khan.

I may have started later than most people with drumming however I have fallen so heavily in love with drums that I wish to make it my life. My main influences and favourite drummers at the moment are Luke Holland, Morgan Berthet, Anika Nilles, Matt Halpern and the list goes on and on. Musically I have a metal background and currently progressive music is where I feel at home... Still decorating xoxo 🙂

    That was awesome! I loved the patterns between your hands and feet. You have great bass drum technique but you don’t overdue it. Feet patterns become another part of the whole pattern between drums and cymbals. That was impressive!

    You must have been a late entry because I do not remember veiwing your video a month agi when I checked out the entries then. But you definitely have a lot of talent, so I’m glad you won the popular vote and end up among the finalists overall.
