Young Drummer, Big Dreams

12-year-old drum wonder Hibiki Sakai is blind, and was diagnosed with cancer in both eyes as a child. But he recently realized his dream of performing on stage with Japanese band Def Tech, to the delight of the audience and his family.

While this would undoubtedly be a happy ending to Sakai's heartwarming story of persistence, dedication and grace, we here at AAJ hope that it's just the beginning for this drumming wonder!
