Similar to the two young fellows appearing in the video below. Luka Sulic and Stiepan Hauser, the duo goes by the identity of “2cellos”. Luka, the native Croatian, took his studies in Zagreb, at the Academy of Music. Following that, he went to Vienna for further studies, then joined Royal Academy of Music in London. Hauser pursued his studies at Royal Northern College of Music. Along the way, he went to join “Trinity Laban” in London.
