Bibi has inspired children around the world to dream of mixing hobbies, having fun and even making a living from it. On social media, he has become an influential figure in the field of music and has received many messages.

Directed by her father, the little girl has more than 44,000 followers on social networks. The posts have started playing an instrument to many children and many older people.

“These days we called an African from Cape Verde, and he told us he used his video as inspiration, even to overcome the prejudice against women in music.”

On Friday (29), BB invites him to the school where he is studying to give a presentation to the high school students. All of these encourage other students to pay attention to the music part.

“It’s hard to explain his talent and musicality. He learns complex songs easily. He has no idea about his talent. He played it.”

The little one says he plays for an hour a day, because the rest of the time is divided between school work, cartoons and games. Bibi said she dreams of working as a drummer when she grows up, but she also wants to be a veterinarian, pianist and swimmer.

The father who is by her side in all the work is proud of her daughter’s talent. “I’m a businessman, a supporter. I help in class. I make videos. I edit. I’ve learned a lot to be able to follow BB. I didn’t mess with it. I’m a metallurgist.

Currently, Bibi has played more than a hundred songs in drums. His favorite genres are rock n ‘roll, but he also plays other genres such as reggae, samba, pop, k-pop, American funky and heavy metal.

“He influences us with the songs we hear today. Something completely different from the current generation.”

With all her dedication and talent, Bibi became acquainted with great national drummers, such as Caio Cunha, Bacalhau, and Aquilas Priester. In 2019, the girl received a standing ovation when Kunha played the song “Mulhar de Fasses” with the band Raimundos after being invited.

On her social networks, Beatriz makes life with musicians from around the world. On the internet, the girl still teaches her tricks to fans.

“He says he wants to be the best drummer in the world by carrying the country’s flag. He dreams of becoming a full-fledged musician. Now, in addition to drum lessons, he is taking songs and keyboard lessons,” his father concluded.
