In 1999 musicians of Koli - a crossover band - decided to create an outfit, which could fulfil their ambitions and interests to play live music. In this way Lao Che was founded. Denat, Spięty and Dimon were joined by Warz, Zubr (Rysiek) and Boguslawowicz (Wieza). The sextette began working on their debut album "Gusła". The compositions were being created gradually and carefully due to the fact that the band was willing to do a concept album completely devoted to Polish Medieval culture.
