With his music, Tokhi has traveled to most European countries and the U.S. and during the EXPO 2010 he performed in China. He has played in sold out stadiums and concert halls throughout Europe. Although still young of age Tokhi is a valued studio percussionist and a respected musician on the Czech as well as international scene.
