Dusilová began her professional singing career in 1988, joining the world-renowned children's choir Bambini di Praga at the age of 13.
During the '90s, Dusilova was a member of several groups and played in the touring version of Lucie, the Czech's Republic's biggest pop-rock band, playing guitar and singing on two CDs. The band opened for the 1995 Rolling Stones show in Prague's Strahov Stadium.
From 1991 to 1995 she was leader of the rock band Sluníčko (Little Tiny Sun), which released an eponymous CD in 1994, won the Marlboro Rock '94 competition, and opened the Open Air Gampell music festival in Switzerland. The band was nominated for the 1994 "Discovery of the Year" Angel Award.
After Sluníčko she formed Pusa (Kiss/Mouth) with two members of Lucie. Their song "Muka" (Wheels of Desire) was nominated for an Angel Award in 1996. She and Lucie's David Koller also collaborated on the soundtracks for two films, and several of her recent songs have been included on film soundtracks.
Lenka Dusilová (born December 28, 1975) is a Czech Angel Award-winning singer-songwriter.
Dusilová won the Angel Award as best female vocalist in 2000. She has been voted best female vocalist every year since 2000 by readers of the premier Czech music magazine, Report. She performs and records with her band, Secret Service.
Since 2000 Dusilova, in addition to her solo work, has recorded and performed with the Czech's preeminent folk-rock band, Czechomor. She appeared on the band's breakthrough album, "Proměny" (Transformations) produced by punkster-turned-classical-composer Jaz Coleman, who characterized her as "a great talent". Coleman merged Czechomor's electrified traditional sound with the rich symphonic power of the Czech Philharmonic Collegium. Dusilova's duet with Czechomor's Franta Cerny of the CD's title song was a fixture on the Czech charts for months in 2001 and won the Angel Award as song of the year. The "Proměny" CD went multiple platinum and won the Angel for album of the year.
Dusilová records for Universal Music, tours regularly in the Czech, and appears on stages throughout Europe. Her earlier solo efforts, "Lenka Dusilová" and "Spatřit světlo světa" also achieved gold record status, and the single "Pro Tebe" (For You) from her debut CD spent eight weeks in the IFPI Top 20.
