The association of musicians Èikori was set up in 1999. The originators Iva Bittová and Vladimír Václavek are involved in improvizational music for the sequel to the successful recording "White Inferno". The other members of Èikori, Franti�ek Kuèera (trumpet) and Jaromír Honzák (double bass) also took part in this new recording. Milo� Dvoøáèek has taken up drums and percussion and the high quality soundtrack was provided by the sound engineer Ivo Viktorin. This resulted in the fresh, expressive and original music which combines the alternative elements of jazz and world music. It is very rich and colourful in its rhythm and sound, evoking feelings of calmness, love, joy and excitement - depending on the sensivity and range of experience of the listener. Most of the lyrics are written by Karel David and Vladimír Václavek and some other writers. Another pleasant addition to the band's concerts is the girls' choir Lelky led by Iva Bittová.
