Foremost representative of Czech "World music" and double winner of the Anděl award for the album of the year!
The band builds its repertoire on Moravian folk music but with its unique approach enhaces the music to new original levels. Their distinctive compositions respect the folklore roots but also reflect the tastes of wide spectrum of today's listeners.
The albums „Poplór“ (2006) and "Cestou na jih" (2012) won the "Anděl" award, "Velesu" (2016) scored in the prestigious TOP 20 Europian World Music Charts and the collection of songs called „Do kamene tesané aneb Ondráš“ became a theme for the Polish theater play „Ondraszek - pan Łysej Góry“
With their music, inspired by traditional Moravian songs, Tomáš Kočko & Orchestr have been touring throughout the Europe - from Russia to Ireland and played at folklore, rock and even metal festivals.
Whilst the first CD „Horní chlapci“ is a folk tribute to Wallachian poet Ladislav Nezdařil, the actual CD „Velesu“ delivers colorful fusion of genres firmly connected to the heritage of the Moravian traditional music. In these two albums you will find the best music of this extraordinary formation.
