About Aine

Freelance drummer / Yoga instructor

Vulcan Cymbals endorser

Hit Like A Girl Japan ambassador

Women In Music Japan committee member

Berlin based drummer, Aine grooves hard, and makes comfortable foundation for the band to play on. Her groove is demanded from many artists from different scenes, from Blues, Afro Funk, Latin/Brazilian to Indie Pop/Rock.


After studying drumming at a music high school in Osaka, Aine moved to the US to pursue her dream and graduated from Berklee College of Music in Boston.

Started her career as a blues session drummer in Boston’s local scene,  she then moved to New York City where she played with Blues legend, such as late Bill Sims Jr., Grammy winner Vasti Jackson, and Grammy nominee Junior Mac. She was one of the house band members of the famous Terra Blues.


Since 2015, her journey continues in Berlin, where she found more possibilities to play different genres from Afro Funk, Blues to Indie Pop/Rock.

Aine also started her own project to expand her artistic expression  through own music.

In 2022, she joined tours with Charlotte Brandi, Alli Neumann, Wallis Bird, and Evelinn Trouble. 

In March 2023, she is releasing her first mini album "aine wie keine" as a leader under the name "aine"
