Dear god please I hope nobody teaches her how to twirl a drumstick because all the happy smiling during the breaks is WAY better.

I was just wondering about her! What a delight.

There is something transcendent about little girls absolutely going nuts on the drums. The unrepressed physical and emotional presence, the extreme mindfulness, it gives me joyful electricity in my whole grownup girl self. See also the wonderful Nandi Bushell!

I would love to see what she does with something slightly more esoteric, as far as The Rocks and The Rolls go, like I Can See For Miles by the Who. I would imagine she would have a hell of a lot of fun with it.

Went down the rabbit hole and watched some other clips of her drumming. I had never really paid attention to the drums on "Uptown Funk" before, but some of those fills she played... wow!

She has a nice feel on the "Rosanna" shuffle!

She's already older than when this kid did YYZ.
