On September 3, Chaktomuk Hall will host the fifth annual “Achievement and Future” event.
The main purpose of the event is to promote Khmer traditional arts and bring them alive for Cambodian audiences who have lost touch with many of these art forms.
This year’s programme includes some changes from previous events. Most interestingly, lakhoan khoal will be included, but not only in one style. Styles from three regions – Phnom Penh, Kampong Thom province and Kandal province’s Svay Endet Pagoda – will be on display.
Hang Phumra, director of Khmer Art Reek Sai and a lakhoan khoal performer, said, “Previously, we only showed the Phnom Penh style of lakhoan khoal. This time you can see the differences between styles from three regions and the different movements.”
Cooperating with Reek Sai and Cambodia Living Arts, the event has received a lot of support from the Ministry of Culture and Fine Art.
Ticket prices are $10 ($15 VIP).
