Teenage drummer Senri Kawaguchi, famous for her enthusiastic YouTube videos, appears in a stunning new video for the Japan National Football Team

There are plenty of musicians doing amazing work on YouTube, but Senri Kawaguchi is easily among the best. Despite still being too young to drink or vote, she’s already well-known to drummers around the world, and a new video released by the drummer last week shows just why so many are in love with her percussive skills.

Playing in support of the Japan National Football Team ahead of the FIFA World Cup, Senri blazes through the song with stunning precision.

As you may have noticed, if you can take your eyes away from the teen’s drumsticks or the giant grin she breaks into halfway through the video, Senri is wearing the team’s newest uniform. We have no idea how the next World Cup will go, of course, but we can’t help thinking that the Japan National Football Team will stand a good chance of going all the way if they can just learn how to channel their inner Senri Kawaguchis!

But you can feel free to enjoy her music even if you’re not on the Japan National Football Team. For example, here’s a video of Senri tearing it up in August, when she performed at Rock Au Chateau in France.

And here’s the drummer performing at Craftsman Drum-off 2015.

Now, if we were on Japan’s national team, we’re pretty sure we’d be pumped enough to play our feet off! As it is, we’re not even sure we’d be able to make contact with the ball, but we’re still pumped!
