Saori Sugimoto

I am Saori Sugimoto. I live in Japan. I'm in my thirties.

Enchanted by the beat of drums, I started playing drums at the age of 15.
I have been playing drums in various bands while working as a company employee.
Rock, pop, orchestra, techno, etc ...

In order to make music the center of my life, I left my company employee and applied for the contest.
HLAG is the second challenge following last year.
This contest will be a great learning experience because you will be able to see female drummers from all over the world and learn about music that you don't know yet. I love it.

My drum policy is "smile", "happy drum", and "drum full of emotion".
I hope you enjoy my drums even a little.
Thank you.

    I like music of [The Band Apart] too.
    It’s wonderful you looks to play different grooves depending on the place.
    And it’s great you seem to enjoy playing very much !
    Plz keep fun and good luck in the contest !
