My name is Zoe Larios, I’am 14 years old, I am from the Riviera Maya, Mexico. I have been playing drums since I was 7 and I also play other instruments and sing for as long I can remember.
Music is my passion and I have been attending for a long time after school music programs; but two years ago I decided to go all the way and started a diploma degree in Popular Contemporary Music and I am graduating from it this year.
I have been taking formal drum lessons with different teachers in my hometown since I was 9. What I love about drumming is that when I play I feel as if I was full of energy. My favorite contemporary drummers are Stella Mozgawa, Stewart Copeland, James Ford, Taylor Hawkins... Last year I had the great opportunity to be in a master class by Simon Philips and I was very impressed.
I enjoy playing different music genres but I feel more freedom playing rock or alternative music. This year for my drum entry I’ve prepared a drum cover of “Aerials” original by System of a Down. It’s a very powerful song and I love the feeling when I am playing it.
