Japeth Aguilar is not only an exceptional dunker, he is also a good drummer. 

The athletic Barangay Ginebra forward showed off his skills on the percussion instrument as displayed in his wife Cassandra Naidas’ Instagram story on Tuesday.

Aguilar played his Ludwig drum set to the beat of Filipino rock hit Narda by the renowned band Kamikazee while his wife, who was having her workout, was persuaded to sing along to the tune. 

“Someone’s noisy while I was working out so I just joined na lang,” Naida said through her IG story. 

Interestingly, Aguilar was exposed to various instrumental instruments when he was still young and it was the drums that became his favorite. He even had a band during his late elementary days. 

As evidenced by his wife’s social media posts, the 33-year-old big man from Sasmuan, Pampanga has been making the most out of the break following the Kings’ grueling championship run in the PBA Philippine Cup. 

The six-time PBA champion and his wife recently enjoyed vacation trips to celebrate the latter’s birthday and the New Year.
