Nine-year-old South African-British drummer Nandi Bushell has shared her talent with the world on US chat host Ellen DeGeneres’s show.

Nandi, whose drumming passion started when she was aged five, told DeGeneres on Tuesday that she developed her interest by listening to bands, especially The Beatles.

“On Saturdays and Sundays, we make pancakes and listen to The Beatles. I saw the drum kit and Ringo Starr, and he inspired me to play the drums,” she said.

During The Ellen Show she performed Nirvana’s In Bloom.

Nandi has in the past attracted the attention of US singer Lenny Kravitz, who invited her to one of his shows in London in June.

Kravitz said he had reached out to her after seeing her Instagram videos.
