David Layde By David Layde - June 13, 2018

Eight-year-old Yoyoka Soma has set the internet alight with her amazing rendition of John Bonham's drumming on Led Zeppelin's 'Good Times, Bad Times'.

Soma’s drumming was her entry in the seventh annual Hit Like a Girl global drumming competition for female percussionists, The purpose of the contest is to spotlight female drummers/percussionists and encourage drumming and lifelong musicianship for girls and women, regardless of age or playing level. Check out the video, her footwork is superb.

Soma was not a prizewinner in this year’s competition, but the video of her performance went viral delighting the interwebs. According to NPR, Soma has been learning the drums since she was two-years-old, performing onstage since the age of four. She also plays drums and keyboards and singing in her family band, Kaneaiyoyoka, who released a video earlier this year for their song 'Whether It'll Do' / 'Happy' which features Soma.
