A natural for sure but the question remains will she get to Blackman and Carrington? Or just reach a plateau and be happy as a top 50.

Her new video, playing "Something Like This" live on stage. Amazing.

I found her clip when she was 9 y/o, playing Tombo 7/4. Wow. I mean, WOW.

She could wipe the floor with most drummers I know regardless of age.

Technique is clean, she sounds good, has dynamic control.

Obviously she's not Vinnie, but she is 13 after all.

Aliens are among us or that kid has two brains and is a reincarnated Buddy.Kidding....I've seen that vid before and I still scratch my head in wonder.It wasn't the speed or the unreal four way independance,as much as it was pretty musical,and technically tough even for a great drummer to do.His execution was damn near perfect.Awesome.

Sorry, I'm just a lurker, but I was blown away by the most recent vid I saw of Senri (backing an incredible Yukiko Onishi on sax) and created an account to share:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2eIeMPhXhSQ

Still not yet 16, Senri appears to be improving at a staggering rate.

Note: For the impatient, to focus on Senri's parts, forward to around 4:00 (the start of the piano solo) after watching Senri's intro.

I'm just a drumming fan lurker, I don't play at all yet love drums, but I almost feel bad especially for the bass, since Senri's the only one who can even keep up talent-wise with the sax...

Her recent play, a solo groove in 15/16...I think she's 16 y/o now.

When I met SENRI a year ago in France, I asked her what made her start playing drums...she looked at me with big eyes and said........IAN PAICE !
not only she's a fantastic drummer, but also a very, very lovely person. Hope to meet her again very soon...Ron

Senri announced that she played drums for Bootsy Collins's new album World Wide Funk at the title tune. Amazing!!

She’s terrific, I wouldn’t compare her to Vinnie (the most accomplished drummer alive) but she’s still great.

Actually guys, I spent some time to analyse this live performance in detail. She's incredibly fast but never heavy, never messy, even in improvisation. Her incredible punch comes from suppleness not brute force, like strikes in martial arts. While her play is youthful and spontaneous, her precision is always perfect regardless of the complexity (a solo on Blue Rondo a la Turk!). What we've got here is the combination of 15 years of hard Japan style discipline at work and an amazing musical sense, all delivered with the freshness of a young lady with no particular heritage to drag.

Senri-san is not the best drummer of her generation, she is not the best drummer in the world, we could well be looking at the best drummer of all times!

Ehm... no. First of all, music is not an athletic event. And even if it was, I doubt she´d even qualify for the Olympics.
Sure, she´s got chops. But - please forgive me - I haven´t heard anything musically worthwhile or original or even remotely interesting in her playing. IMHO it´s just generic fusion stuff, very well executed, but... boring. Just my point of view, of course.

God, I'd love to be that boring.
