Hit Like A Girl

The winners of the Hit Like A Girl Contest were announced in a live webcast from DrumChannel.com earlier this month.

The Under 18 grand prize winner was an inspired performer from Japan, 11-year old Kanade Sato. Her video of a tune written by her musician father was an impressive performance by a drummer of any age.

Kanade was followed by Nat Drum-Her of the United States and Leticia Santos of Brazil, both outstanding performers. The top three winners in each category receive drum sets, cymbals and other prizes.

The Over 18 grand prize winner, Riesha Fayson of the United States, is a gospel powerhouse whose church-inspired chops gave her the championship.

In the Over 18 category, Riesha Fayson was followed by Fer Fuentes of Chile and Anika Nilles (AnyK) of Germany. Our congratulations to all the winners on their talent and performances.

The event was hosted by Drum Channel and produced by DRUM!, Tom Tom Magazine and TRX Cymbals.

For over three years, Drummer Cafe has been a proud media sponsor for the Hit Like A Girl event.
