A former Bute resident has been crowned Australia’s best bass drummer at the biggest competition of the year in her adopted home.

Sara Hamza, nee Martin, took the B grade bass drumming championships for both Victoria state and the whole of Australia - despite playing the instrument for less than a year.

And she then went on to take first place in the A-grade competition at the same event.
