Kan'Nal was formed when the core members met on separate solo backpacking trips through Mexico and Central America in 2002, and is currently residing in Boulder, CO. The music, similar to acoustic rock infused with tribal rhythms and instrumentation, is referred to by the band and others variously as "tribal psychedelic rock" or "shamanic rock". The music is spiritually oriented and positive. Kan'Nal is an experience! The band's live show often incorporates theatrics including fire dancing.
