When I think of female drummers, I think of Sheila E. There are only a few women that I know that play the drums. We have Cindy Blackman and Karen Carpenter who was a singer and drummer. There are probably more female drummers than that.
Today I am hearing a different voice of a Xen Lounge Drummer. She is a female drummer and is new to me. She plays the drums well and brings great beat.
