Michaela Naydenova

I started with drum lessons at the age of 15 and afterwards I decided to continue my professional path in that direction. I have a bachelor’s degree from the National Music Academy in Pop and Jazz drumming. In 2021 I continued my university education and now one of my main activities is teaching drums.

Three years ago I won 3rd place in the international ‘Hit Like A Girl’ contest and later became the first Bulgarian artist to be signed by Meinl and DW. I have played in several bands here as Khan–™, Ember & Dust, Phyx(session live member), Bloodrush (session live member) and will soon announce couple of projects I currently work on.

In 2022 I played on my first drum festival – Sofia Drum Fest – with Krimh and George Kollias as headliners.
