Nandi Bushell Drumming to "In Bloom" by Nirvana
If you closed your eyes and listened to Nandi Bushell's drumming videos, you'd be shocked to find out she's just 9 years old. That's exactly what happened to me after clicking "play" on her recent cover of Nirvana's 1991 classic "In Bloom," which has eight million views on Twitter after being posted just a few days ago. While my parents were forced to purchase a lifetime supply of earplugs when I was her age and experimenting with percussion instruments (still sorry about that, Mom and Dad!), Nandi is proving that talent has no age requirement, as I am in my late 20s and should go nowhere near a drum set.
The talented young girl has an impressive résumé, and the viral Nirvana cover video is only the latest on her list of accomplishments. Nandi has been posting drumming videos on YouTube since she was 6 years old and recently starred in a Christmas advertisement for Argos in the UK. She also performed with Lenny Kravitz back in June! Nandi often practices with her brother Thomas, and they make quite the musical duo.
