Nandi’s mother, Lungi, hails from Esikhawini in KwaZulu-Natal. Her father, John, is British. The two met when Lungi took a gap year in London, and the rest is history.

Bushell has become a YouTube sensation, posting videos of her drumming for a few years now and garnering the attention of many of today's top rock stars

The musician recently posted her drum cover of Foo Fighters' 'Everlong' and put the challenge out to Grohl. 

With all the confidence in the world, Nandi said, "My dream is to one day jam with Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins and all the @Foo Fighters! Mr Grohl I would love to have a drum battle with you! I LOVE 'Everlong' it’s really hard to play as it’s so fast but so much FUN!!!"
