The Rage Against The Machine guitarist took to Twitter to praise the youngster, who is a Brazilian-Congolese musician and producer whose cover videos on Instagram and YouTube help to showcase his skills.

Morello said of the clips that they were “some of the best guitar playing” he’s heard recently.


Morello said: “Well that’s some of the best guitar playing I’ve witnessed in quite some time,” he said, quote-tweeting a clip of Tshiswaka  playing some jazz over a backing track.

Morello has previously shown his support for ten-year-old drumming sensation Nandi Bushell who jammed with him and his son Roman.

Last year, Nandi shared a video of her playing drums alongside the pair. In the clip, Morello and his son can be seen playing guitar.

“Jamming with legendary #guitarist @tommorello (from @rageagainstthemachine / #audioslave) and his #incredible son, Roman,” wrote Nandi on Instagram.


“We have written an #Epic song together (not the one you hear in our sweet improvisational jam). Our new song is going to be released soon! I can’t wait for you all to hear it! Thank you for welcoming us into your beautiful family!”
