9-Year Old Ukrainian Drummer Alice K To Attend The UK Drum Show As Hit Like A Girl’s Special Guest

Hit Like A Girl Executive Director David Levine has announced that special arrangements have been made for Alice K., one of this year’s Hit Like A Girl contestants from Ukraine, to attend the upcoming UK Drum Show. Alice is a resident of Kyiv where she lives with her mother and father and their Labrador Retriever, Elli.

“I am 9 years old and I’ve been playing drums for 4 years,” Alice says. “I love drumming very much. Also I love my family, my friends, my school and my life— even despite the war. Life is beautiful and unfair.”


While Alice represents the growing number of young girls around the world who are playing drums, she also represents the children of Ukraine who struggle to maintain some sense of normality in the face of danger and devastating brutality. “Alice’s visit to the Drum Show will give her the opportunity to connect with a community that supports and values her,” explains Levine.

Taking place September 30 and October 1 in Liverpool, England, the UK Drum Show features a variety of exhibits as well as educational activities. Over its long and prestigious history the event has become a destination for drummers from England, Europe and the world. Attendees are welcome to stop by the Hit Like A Girl Lounge at TUKDS and say hello to Alice throughout the weekend. For tickets and information, visit www.theukdrumshow.com.
