Billy Cobham. Dave Weckl. Cindy Blackman. Senri Kawaguchi. You read that right. Senri joined the illustrious line up of the world's greatest drummers in 2010 at age 13. Born in 1997 in the suburbs of Nagoya, Senri started playing drums at the tender age of 5, while kids her age were struggling with basic arithmetic. By the time she was 8, the child prodigy was blossoming under the tutelage of her mentor, Kozo Suganuma, a famous session drummer. Since then, she has gone on to play with several rock bands in Japan, including the fusion band, Fragile and the idol troupe 'the E Girls'. Besides joining the greats on Dummer World, Senri is featured on Zildjian as well. Senri Kawaguchi, who turned 20 this year, prefers to introduce herself not just as a jazz drummer, as she feels 'it's a bit of waste to limit yourself just to jazz'. You can see why when you see her perform.
