Why a Cambodian Music Festival?
A ticket of admission to the Cambodian Music Festival is more than just a fun day of being captivated by the original music of inspired artists. It is about supporting and participating in a larger movement that is shaking up Hollywood and moving through to its rightful place on the world stage. We answer a louder call to rebuild and restore an artistic legacy. In the most recent decades, Cambodian music has mostly survived as a living art form due to the loss of master recordings and musicians. It has been passed down to our generation as melodies hummed by our parents, as wedding and funeral songs at Buddhist ceremonies. Poor quality sound recordings have been painstakingly preserved on tape and CD. However, the driving force of this renaissance is the refusal to be defined by a tragic past perpetrated by the brutal Khmer Rouge regime. Transcendence lies within the creation and sharing of these new works, which humbly strive to replace what was nearly destroyed. Dance to the rhythms as the stories unfold of what we survived, and why we survived. Fourteen Artists. One stage. One Epic Event.
