Group by concert in Písek (2010)

Spirituál kvintet is a Czech Folk music band formed in 1960 by Jiří Tichota and others. Its importance for the Czech public can be compared with the Weavers for the US. Both the band's publisher [1] and independent reviews [2] consider it as a legend and one of the best Czech bands. So does the official page of the Czech Republic: "Spirituál Kvintet with Irena Budweiserová are a legendary outfit combining spirituals with the folk tradition, while Vaclav Koubek has tailored his informal songs for a barroom band."[3]

The album Šlapej dál (1985) was sold in more than 130,000 copies.[4]

Current members of the band are Jiří Tichota, Zdena Tichotová, Veronika Součková, Dušan Vančura, Jiří Cerha, and Jiří Holoubek.
