This is Rinay, 16 years of age from Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India. Happy and excited to be a part of my first Hit Like A Girl Contest. Have been drumming for the last two years on and off but have decided to make a career as a drummer and have been constantly practicing for the last six months. I must confess that what started as a hobby has become a passion and following drummers like Todd Sucherman, Anika Nillies, Sarah Thawer has fuelled this passion to make me turn to making music as my career choice. My parents have been extremely supportive in this journey and my tutor is an excellent drummer himself and is a great stepping stone on this journey of mine.
The song chosen by me for Hit Like A Girl Contest 2020 is by an Indian Alternative Rock band called AVIAL. The Bands music is a fusion of native folk music and alternative rock. AVIAL is named after a vegetarian South Indian Delicacy which my mom cooks for us at home.
Hope all enjoy this drum cover of mine and my best wishes to team Hit Like A Girl Contest for making this awesome event possible
