Čankišou music is based on an old legend about one legged Čanki people and the band also learnt their language which is understandable all over the world. Čankišou 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.

Lé La
CD called Lé La is infl uenced mainly by many long journeys the band made in the last two years. Lé La is the most energetic from all the Cankisou CD's. Through melody created by singer Karel Herman's remarkable voice and brass instruments you can feel international absorption of various cultures. Wild rhythms disturb your comfortable seating and listening to the music and make you dance till the last beat of the last song called www.bwindiorphans.org. At the same time this ""craziness"" still includes interesting music ideas and you can hear how the musicians are skillful. They have been together for nearly 13 years so their good coordination is obvious from the fi rst tone. There is also a video called ZUHA on the Lé La CD. It was shot mainly in Pakistan while the band participated in World Performing and Visual Arts Festival there. It's an impressive view of life in Orient combined with ligth story. Famous Pakistan singer Sain Zahoor who received BBC World music 2006 award appears at the video too."
