Hank Shteamer comments on her efforts at Rolling Stone:

The Internet is teeming with cover videos, many of them by kids like Soma. But there's something special about this one, which was originally a submission to the Hit Like a Girl drumming contest. It's not just the accuracy of the performance; it's her loping, laid-back approach, which is not only Bonham's greatest contribution to rock percussion - it's the hardest part of his style to imitate.

And then there's the glee. Watching Soma whip around the kit during the chorus, you can feel the joy and abandon pouring out of her. This goes beyond "cute kid playing drums" and touches on something surprisingly transcendent.
