2Cellos do Guns n’ Roses, Michael Jackson

I discovered a talented musical group thanks to David Spira, also known as the Geek Whisperer. I was so impressed that I had to share.

2Cellos is a musical duo made up of Croatian cellists Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser. They recently signed a recording contract with Sony after their Youtube video of “Smooth Criminal” went viral. Using two cellos, they created an amazing cover of the classic Michael Jackson song. They later topped that with a more incredible cello version of the Guns n’ Roses song “Welcome to the Jungle.”

If you love the beautiful instrument that is the cello, you will love these songs. Even if you don’t, you have to appreciate the sounds they are able to create here. I’m pretty sure you’ve never heard the cello played in this way before. Enjoy.

Their debut album is scheduled for release on July 19 and it will feature cello covers of songs by U2, Nine Inch Nails, Sting, Nirvana, Muse and more.
