  • I first encountered Letícia Santos out on YouTube back in August of 2013.  The video I watched her in was of the song Tom Sawyer by Rush.  She was only 11 at the time, but the precision and skill that she displayed was just incredible to watch!  I have since had the pleasure to watch this young lady continue to perform with her current band, Black Aces, and I can tell you that not only is she incredibly accomplished for her age - she loves her fans (and it shows in all she does).  She just loves music in all of its forms, and is an incredible talent!  Congratulations Letícia! smile

  • And just one last share (because this is one of my favorites because it is her own composition and music with her band - Black Aces).

    This is from a screen test for a movie that was considering putting her and her band’s music in their film.  This is from 2012.

  • I love your playing Leticia! You got the music in your soul! Keep on slammin’.... Ramon.

  • Wow!! Very very talented young girl!! You can tell she enjoys what she’s doing, she has passion for it, and she’s dang good!!! She gets my vote!! Keep rocking!!!

  • I first saw Leticia some years ago when she was about 11, in a solo performance at an outdoor concert where I happened to be playing with her professor Guto Goffi. I was impressed to the point of asking for her phone number. Come 2013, I invited her to join my big band for a number onstage at Rock Street, Rock in Rio. Of course there was no such thing as a rehearsal, I just sent her the chart and a recording of the arrangement and we met onstage for a quick sound check, and she was perfect, totally ready to get down! Get down she did and we all loved every minute. Leticia is awesome and very soon will surely be on a first call with the best and baddest..

  • me emocioné al escucharte. ya te conocía por la revista hit hit girls y te había escuchado. pero este video me emocionó! Sos muy talentosa y tenés un futuro infinito adelante.

  • Muy bueno!!!

  • Boa sorte! Coloquei o meu sem pretensões…:)

    (ser fã de Buddy Rich já lhe dá um ótimo ponto de partida)

  • Impressive.  I love the stick control and creativity. Good luck in your music career!

  • WOW! outstanding…. Timing, Feel… amazing!

  • You are so talented! WOO HOO! x Mindy

  • Letícia is one of most stunning young drummers I have seen in years. Check her video out. Dave Weckl would not put one of her videos in his blog if this girl was not so amazing. I vote for Leticia.

  • Leticia Santos es una gran baterista con talento desbordante! El primer video que vi de ella fue un tema de Dave Weckl “Rainy Days”....tenía sólo 10 años y quedé sorprendido, hoy en día es una de las mejores bateristas de su país, y en su desde ya gran experiencia está también su participación como integrante de la genial banda de Rock “Black Aces”. Deseo que Leticia quede en 1er lugar, ya que a su corta edad (14 años) tiene un excelente perfil musical y profesional acompañado de una gran personalidad! Éxitos Leticia! You really rock!!!

  • Congratulations Letícia on being selected as one of the Finalists!!!  :D
