Before 2021 came to an end, Nandi Bushell gifted us with one last video. This time, instead of covering a song she tried her hand at improvising, and unsurprisingly totally killed it.
In an Instagram post, the 11-year-old explained how watching Fatboy Slim’s daughter Nelly Cook DJ on YouTube inspired her to improvise a drum part over her dad’s 1999 hit “Right Here, Right Now,” marking the first time she played along with a dance song. “It was a lot of fun and nice to try something different on my musical quest,” the prodigy wrote.

Though 2021 was a rough year for many people, Nandi seemed to thrive. Aside from continuing to wow the masses with her covers, the young rockstar also performed with Foo Fighters onstage, jammed with Arctic Monkeys’ Matt Helders and Queen’s Roger Taylor, and released an original song with Tom Morello and his son Roman called “The Children Will Rise Up” to help raise awareness of the climate crisis. She’s a bona fide badass and we can’t want to see what awaits for her in 2022.
