The Kid Should See This

Nirvana drum cover by 9-year-old Nandi Bushell

Nine-year-old Nandi Bushell loves to drum and has been sharing performances on YouTube since she was six. In this video, the British and Zulu drummer girl from Ipswich, England rocks Nirvana’s In Bloom. Drum face and rollercoaster-worthy screaming are in full effect.
