Yu Takagi

Yu Takagi, 8yrs old Japanese girl, born in 2012.

Started Drumming 2yrs and 6months back, when she was 6yrs old. One day, when we watched Live DVD of "Red Hot Chili Peppers", she said suddenly, "Mom!! I know how Chad do this!! Let me do it now!!", and started drumming with corrugated paper box!! It was the very first moment of her beautiful drumming life. After that, for the last 1000 days, she has been drumming hard to be like her best drummer, "Chad Smith", saying "Chad is doing like this!!".

Finally, she is on this great stage, "Hit Like A Girl 2021", with the song, "By The Way" from her favorite “Red Hot Chili Peppers” in coveralls!! By the way, she believes that Chad will check this video if she play good. And if super lucky, might be able to have session with Red Hot Chili Peppers in the future!! (smile)

Lastly, thank you very much for giving us great opportunity to demonstrate her drum now, and hope everybody enjoy this great event together!! Arigatou!!
