Luka Sulic: Bio

The son of a cellist, Luka Šulić has been playing the cello since his childhood in his native Slovenia. His studies took him to London's Royal Academy of Music, from which he graduated in 2011. That same year, he and Stjepan Hauser made the music video – their unique cello version of Michael Jackson's "Smooth Criminal" – that went viral and launched the worldwide success of 2CELLOS.

Prior to that, Šulić had won top prizes at such prestigious international music competitions as the Lutoslawski International Cello Competition and the European Broadcasting Union "New Talent" Competition, as well as the Royal Academy of Music Patron's Award in Wigmore Hall in 2011. As a soloist, Šulić has appeared with a number of international orchestras, including the Deutsche Radio Philharmonie, Australian Chamber Orchestra, Warsaw Philharmonic and Russian Symphony Orchestra.

The success of 2CELLOS led to Šulić and Hauser performing withSir Elton John on his worldwide tour, a record deal with Sony Masterworks that has yielded five successful albums. As 2CELLOS, they have sold out such iconic global venues such as New York City's Radio City Music Hall, London's Royal Albert Hall, Paris Olympia, Tokyo's Budokan, and the Sydney Opera House.
