company description

Czech band Cankisou became famous in the Czech Republic and also abroad for its concerts full of energy and wild rhythms. Concerts run by singer Karel Herman who is very impressive not only because of his voice but also his figure become wild dance parties few minutes after beginning. Cankisou mixes influences from various ethnics with rock roots and with its rich collection of exotic instruments travels the world from Réunion island in an Indian ocean to Pakistan.

Cankisou was established at a Christmas party in 1999 by rock musicians. They put together various exotic and common rock instruments and started to explore world music field which was completely new for them at that time. Cankisou music is based on an old legend about one legged Canki people and the band also learnt their language. Within nearly 10 years of existence the band has become one of the top world music bands in the Czech republic and has travelled 13 countries so far.

Cankisou published several successful CD´s: first CD called Music of the Canki people (Hudba lidu Canki, 2000) is full of energy and passion from new meeting/exploring with world music. More thoughtful Densé ju (2002) includes tittle Mongolian folk song, which was brought by singer Karel Herman from a festival in Mongolia. Third Gamagaj (2004) is inspired by a book Baudolino by Umberto Eco (all by FT Records). New CD called Lé La was published in spring 2008 by Indies Scope Reocrds. The CD is inspired mainly by many long journeys and fusions with local musicians the band did in last two years. Sain Zahoor appears as a guest in song called Zuha.
