Young Croatian cellists Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, together known as 2CELLOS, have achieved sensational success by taking cello to a new level. Their playing style has broken down the boundaries between musical genres, from classical and film music to pop and rock. 2CELLOS have no limits when it comes to performing live and are equally as impressive playing Bach and Vivaldi as they are rocking out AC/DC.
2CELLOS rose to fame in 2011 when their version of Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal” took the world by storm. The YouTube video became a massive viral sensation leading to a record deal with Sony Masterworks and an invitation to join Sir Elton John on his worldwide tour.
Despite their huge online following where they continue to amaze with new YouTube hits, 2CELLOS’ main focus and dedication has always been playing live. The duo have sold out tours across the USA, Japan, South America, Australia, and Europe. They have performed at venues and events as prestigious as the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in the UK, The Ford’s Theatre Annual Gala with President Obama, the Emmys in Los Angeles, Celebrity Fight Night Gala in Florence, Starkey Hearing Foundation Gala, and FIFA’s Ballon D’Or in Switzerland.
