ČANKIŠOU – Great Music From The Czech Republic
Completely energetic, rock roots, a huge collection of exotic instruments, ethnic groove and an unforgettable lead singer – this is Čankišou. They are one of the top world music bands in the Czech Republic and their most recent album made 17th in the World Music Chart Europe in November 2011. The beat is insistent. The music is riveting. The sound is eclectic.
Czech band Čankišou 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 dance parties few minutes after beginning. Čankišou mixes influences from various ethnics with rock roots and with its rich collection of exotic instruments travels the world.
