Cello and guitar: a strange combination? Not at all, even if you won't find many duos in Germany performing in that setup!
Brazilian bossanova often times features the cello as accompanying or even lead instrument. This holds true since the days of famous cellist Jacques Morelenbaum, who rendered some well-known interpretations of bossa hits together with Antonio Carlos Jobim.
The characteristic warm acoustic color of the cello blends nicely with the rather percussive guitar. They result in a sonic variation providing an interesting harmonic basis for bossa classics like Girl from Ipanema or One Note Samba as well as pop songs like Fragile by Sting or Get lucky by Daft Punk.
