Yoyoka Soma is a prodigy. Her drumming skills would make even the most talented percussionist jealous — and she’s only nine years old!

If you don’t have time to watch the whole CUTE video, please treat yourself and skip to 5:06 and 5:41 to watch Yoyoka absolutely tear it up.

The Japan native visited The Ellen Show for the second time and gushed about how she looks up to Dave Grohl, specifically pointing out the “cool” sound his drum makes and his “heavy groove.”

After treating the audience to a spectacular drum performance of Foo Fighters’ “The Pretender,” Ellen had a surprise for the young musician: a video message from her idol.

“Hey Yoyoka, this is Dave Grohl from the Foo Fighters,” he said in the clip. “I’ve seen you play ‘The Pretender’ before and you’re amazing. So keep it up, because the world needs more drummers.”
