Viktor Sodoma

Viktor Sodoma (born 5 July 1945) is a Czech singer and occasional actor,[1] considered to be a pioneer of 1960s Czech rock and roll and beat music. He began his career by performing at Semafor theatre and during the 1960s, sang with the bands Flamengo and Matadors.[2] After the start of the Czechoslovak Normalization period in 1968, Sodoma returned to the theatre. Between 1971 and 1973, he sang in a band called Shut Up, who originally performed at Semafor and eventually changed their name to František Ringo Čech Group. Sodoma recorded one album with the band, 1972's Haló děťátka, and was replaced a year later by the ill-fated Jiří Schelinger. He has since performed in various ensembles, including George & Beatovens, as well as having a solo singing career.
