Park Slope, Brooklyn

Watch Rufus Cappadocia's music video for his piece "Transformation" with dance Sheila Anozier

Rufus is one of the leading voices of cello today. His technique and musicianship inspire awe and critics have characterized his playing as "powerful and exploring territory that is positively otherworldly." Rufus plays a self-designed five-string electric cello that extends the bass range of the cello and through amplification expands its tonal possibilities. He has collaborated with musicians from the Balkans, Ireland, West Africa, Greece and the Caribbean. He has backed the great singers Aretha Franklin and Kasse Mady. He was at the core of the rhythm section of Urban Tap, a dance company he toured with extensively. Rufus can be heard on cd with Songs for Cello (solo cello) , Bethany & Rufus, The Paradox Trio, among others.
