Cello players reinvent their musical instrument
Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, who are collectively known as 2Cellos, are both classically trained musicians with a penchant for pop music.
Looking to show that cellos have a diverse range, the duo have quietly been building up a cult following – even celebrities are impressed.
Pop megastar Elton John was so amazed by what he saw on his computer that he engineered a meeting with Mr Sulic and Mr Stjepan.
“He said he loved the video as well as our classical performances, and invited us to tour with him," Mr Sulic told Limelight Magazine.
They have since gone on to become part of Elton's tight ensemble, jamming with his 11-piece band all around Europe and strumming their way around Australia.
2Cellos have also covered U2's With or Without You, Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit and Coldplay's Viva La Vida.
Their self-titled debut album also features the theme from the hit movie Pulp Fiction and Guns N' Roses' Welcome To The Jungle.
