Talent knows no age and Johanne Astrid Poulsen proves this true. All of 10, this girl is a drumming prodigy and after a Facebook video which has gone viral with over 1.4 million views, she has become popular. In the video posted by Facebook page, NowThis Her, Johanna says ‘she loves music and rock but not jazz, because it makes her fall asleep’. LOL. She, recently, won a talent show in Denmark. She is also a band member of a rock band, Jo and the Mofos. Yes, no need to go back and read it again, you read that right. Johanne dreams of becoming a professional drummer when she grows up, but looking at her awe-inspiring performances, we think she is already a rockstar.
The energy and passion with which Johanne with which Johanne plays drums is just magical. In another video of her posted on the YouTube, she has been even be compared with Lars Ulrich, the famous drummer of Metallica, and the comment reads, ‘Better than Ulrich’ and someone in response to this says ‘ I was waiting for someone to say this.’ Playing Led Zeppelin’s Whole Lotta Love and Rage Against the Machine’s Killing In The Name is no child’s play, but for Johanne it is.
During her mesmerizing performances on the talent show and in the videos posted on her own Facebook page, the precision with which she plays the drums is nothing less than impressive.
