Hello, cello: a classical instrument like you’ve never heard it before.

Hamilton-born Rufus Cappadocia was introduced to the cello at age three. By six he began classical studies with renowned Czech cellist Zdenick Konicek. But it was as a teen he developed an interest in experimenting with a wider array of musical styles. Nowadays, Cappadocia plays a five- string electric cello of his own design, and works often with a diverse range artists from Odetta to Hugh Marsh to Aretha Franklin, coaxing surprising and delightful sounds from a most unexpected source.
