It’s amazing that so many drummers I run into don’t know about her; granted, she is Royal Academy trained and her main direction is orchestral, but obviously she branches out into all sorts of musical realms. Performing for the better part of 40 years, here’s the astounding thing...she’s deaf. That’s right, suffered degenerative hearing loss as a teen. Hasn’t stopped her, as you will hear her explain how she feels the vibrations around her... There is so much video material, but if you have the time, this will explain everything about her.... I was conversing with the drummer of a honky tonk band I go to see frequently, and as he also performs in a Gamelan ensemble(how’s that for versatility?)I mentioned her to him, and, once again, he didn’t know. So, after sending him a bunch of clips, I started wondering about this place, as we deal with drummers and vibration as well.
