2CELLOS - Featured Q&A on Mashable: Throwback Tunesday

Bookmark and Share

Mashable amplifies the echoes of music past on Welcome to Throwback Tunesday. With genre trends and throwbacks, they synthesize music and nostalgia.

Trying to describe 2CELLOS in just a few sentences is simply impossible. They're more than just a pair of pals playing some cello - they create a modern day mashup of boundary-breaking rock, pop and classical music. And, you can't fully appreciate the talent that Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser bring to the table until you've watched them perform, either in one of their YouTube videos, which have accumulated tens of millions of views, or in-person (which we highly suggest you do).

The Croatian duo found fame after they posted a viral cover of "Smooth Criminal" on YouTube in 2011. Since then, they've released three albums, have gone on tour with Sir Elton John, appeared on shows like Glee, Ellen, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, the Today show and, as of this week, performed live at Mashable's office. And we can tell you firsthand that these cellists know how to rock.
