These Kid Drummers Are Breaking YouTube
In the beginning of November, the internet was introduced to Nandi Bushell whose energetic cover of Nirvana's "In Bloom" went viral. Recently I found a 10 year old from Japan who NAILS her covers uploaded to her YouTube channel.
From Grand Funk Railroad, to Rage Against the Machine, YoYoka has some serious talent. Her video covering Led Zeppelin's “Good Times Bad Times” was even featured in American Rolling Stone magazine.
The longer I browse her channel the more I am blown away by the variety of styles she is able to cover, keeping her unique energy present through out every performance. Here are a few of my favorites so far:
I can't tell you how many times I have rocekd out to this song and air drummed like I was live on stage. So this cover for sure brought me back watching her headbang just as I did back in the day.
Ahh nothing like the smell of youthful Rebellion in the morning. But seriously give this one a listen. Her ability to stutter step the bass drum is better than a lot of bands I have seen.
The coolest part is the WHOLE TIME this kid is grinning ear to ear. Talk about doing what you love.
