Watch the musical prodigy score a nod from Jay Weinberg with her killer rendition of “Duality”

The 11-year old multi-instrumental talent of Nandi Bushell was one of the highlights of 2020. Her succession of viral videos showcasing impressive covers earned the praise of luminaries like Lenny Kravitz, Tom Morello, and even resulted in a collaboration with none other than Foo Fighters’ frontman, Dave Grohl.

For Nandi’s latest flex, the prodigy paid tribute to the drummers of Slipknot in Joey Jordison and Jay Weinberg by getting behind the drum kit for a rendition of the Slipknot essential, “Duality”. “It’s true, one of my favourite bands so far is Slipknot,” Bushell shared via her social media. ​“I love drumming with double pedals. It’s so satisfying! 

“Both Jay [Weinberg] and Joey Jordison are awesome drummers. But I really, really love Jay’s playing! True fact, I actually listen to Slipknot when I go to bed at night. I am wearing a Jay [Weinberg] mask made by Joel! Thank you Joel”

The upload managed to make its way to Slipknot drummer Jay Weinberg who offered his words of encouragement for young Nandi via Twitter. “You’re the best, Nandi!! Always crushing it!”
