“Cello wunderkind Rufus Cappadocia burns through ecstatic wails, slap-stringed grooves, and transcendant riffs with gorgeous sound and technique to spare?all on an amped 5-string cello he designed himself.” BAM Caf? Live



Rufus Cappadocia has toured throughout the Americas and Europe with numerous groups and is known for his collaborations with artists from all over the world… from the Balkans to the Caribbean, from West Africa to North America. He has toured extensively with Urban Tap and The Paradox Trio. Cappadocia has just finished recording for Pest Records with Badal Roy (who played tabla with Miles Davis) and Barney Mcall (who plays piano with Gary Bartz); a Canadian release with Hugh Marsh (violin) and Bary Romberg (drums); and is currently recording a new project, Vodou Jazz Ensemble with “Bonga” Jean-Baptiste as well as a CD of unaccompanied solo cello.



After years of experimentation and practice Rufus now plays a self designed Five String Electric Cello that extends the bass range of the cello and through amplification expands the tonal possibilities of the instrument. Rufus has made a career of going where few cellists have gone before. He has appeared on CDs with Ross Daly, Kif, David Fiuczynski, The Paradox Trio, Odetta, Michael Blake, and Tamalalou. Rufus has also performed with Kasse Mady, Aretha Franklin, The Black Rock Coalition, Esma, Theodossi Spassoff, Seamus Egan, Eileen Eivers, Cheick-Tidiane Seck, Vernon Reid, and many more.
