If you haven’t heard of the Croatian duo 2Cellos by now, then you’re missing out. The two consists of classically trained Luka Šulić and Stjepan Hauser. They have combined classical and modern music into one sensational resonance. By remastering the sound of the cello, they have brought the musical art to a whole new level for audiences worldwide. As you’re watching their live performances, you can see how Luka and Stjepan put a vast amount of emotion and passion into playing each song. The music will truly inspire you.
The two rose to fame when their cover of Michael Jackson’s song Smooth Criminal went viral on Youtube. They have covered a wide range of music that just sounds amazing! Here’s a short Youtube list of the songs that they have played live in concert; Back in Black, Thunderstruck, Welcome To The Jungle, Smells Like Teen Spirit, Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life), When I Come Around.
One of my personal favorites is their cover of Michael Jackson’s hit song They Don’t Care About Us. The cover is from their new album Celloverse. The film to that particular song is of the Napoleonic wars. The music video is epic! I would definitely consider it truth in music.
Luka and Stjepan’s cover of ACDC’s song Thunderstruck is one of their most watched music videos on Youtube with over 67 million views and counting.
