MANILA, Philippines – From Rock ‘N Roll to Classical and straight back to Rock ‘N Roll.
Cellists Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, known collectively as 2CELLOS, shocks an audience waiting to hear a classical performance when they started head-banging and rocking to their own rendition of AC/DC’s “Thunderstruck.”
This is not the first time the two Croatians used their cellos to break musical genre boundaries. The world first took note of 2CELLOS when their version of Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal” became a massive online hit.
The “Smooth Criminal” video earned them a record deal with Sony Masterworks and an invitation to be part of Sir Elton John’s worldwide tour.
Elton John has high regards for Sulic and Hauser.
“Go and see them live, because it really is astonishing! I can’t remember seeing anything as exciting as them since I saw Jimi Hendrix live back in the 60’s,” recommended John. – Rappler.com
