The Music of Cambodia

My brother Dan is in LA this week, just back from a 2.5 month stint in Cambodia. Among other things, he’s been working on a documentary of Cambodian Living Arts. CLA provides the opportunity for the few remaining masters of traditional Cambodian music who were not killed by the Khmer Rouge to teach their art to young people in Cambodia. It is truly an astonishing foundation brimming with beautiful music and people who have lived through incredible hardship to carry on their culture.

Here’s a link to their website:

And here you can find a multitude of pictures from Dan’s most recent trip, including pictures of CLA masters and students:
