It’s not every day that you see two cello players opening up for Elton John. Or playing on a hit TV show like Glee. But I guess Luka Šulić and Stejepan Hauser aren't your ordinary cellists. Together, they make up 2CELLOS--one, singular stringed sensation bridging the gap between musics classical and pop. You'll recall, Šulić and Hauser rose to fame at the frog of Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal.” Some 9 million YouTube views later, yeah, 2CELLOS (2CELLI?) is a household name. Recently, I had the pleasure to speak with the duo about their new album 'Celloverse,' just how they come up with their music video ideas and, most importantly, bananas. Lotsa bananas.
2CELLOS, made up of the electric and instrumental Croatian duo Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, will be releasing their third album, 'Celloverse,' on Jan. 27 from Portrait/Sony Music Masterworks. The new album will also feature music by critically-acclaimed pianist, Lang Lang.
For a good time, call the new German quartet Salut Salon. The group of women, trending on the social mediascapes, infuse a refreshing new blend of music, acrobatics and, believe it or not, some slapstick humor.
What do you get when you mix heavy rock with classical celli? You get the latest collaboration from Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser.
