Amazing 17-Year-Old Street Drummer Puts Grown-Up Rockers to Shame
In one of the most impressive displays of drumming we’ve ever seen, 17-year-old Baard Kolstad bangs out an incredible beat on the streets of Oslo, Norway. Nobody — and we mean nobody — pounds the skins like this kid.
Kolstad is so proficient that he seems to play several different beats at the same time. He even tosses in flashy sticks twirls and throws. Does he have extra hands and feet tucked away somewhere?
In 2009, the young drummer made it to the semifinals on ‘Norse Talenter,’ the Norwegian equivalent of ‘America’s Got Talent.’ In our opinion, he should have gone all the way. Seriously, he’s just that good.
Up-and-coming rock bands take note — we just found your new drummer. Don’t let the Mini Band snatch him up.
