REWORKING THE CLAS­SICS

Where Ottawa - - Hot Dates -

Luka Sulic and St­jepan Hauser, the duo more com­monly known as 2Cel­los, met in their teens when they stud­ied mu­sic in Croa­tia. At the time, they of­ten com­peted against each other in mu­sic con­tests, and many saw them as ri­vals. But in 2011, when their paths crossed again af­ter years of work­ing in dif­fer­ent cities, they de­cided to team up. Their cello ver­sion of Michael Jack­son’s “Smooth Crim­i­nal” went vi­ral when they up­loaded it to YouTube, and they've been sell­ing out sta­di­ums with their unique take on pop songs and clas­si­cal mu­sic ever since.
