The careers and the often-times-tragic histories of Cambodia’s “siren singers” from the last 50 years have been honoured in a new exhibition of paintings by Cambodian Space Project founder Julian Poulson.
Friday is Fete de la Musique, or Music Day, a French tradition dating back to the early 1980s, dedicated to musical events, and Phnom Penh is celebrating in style.
When it comes down to it, long-time Aussie expat Julien Poulson of Cambodian Space Project fame isn’t a bad sort of bloke – it’s just that he’s got this habit of overachieving that makes most other blokes look a bit slack.
In the fading sunlight last Sunday, many found it hard not to feel choked by their emotions at the musical memorial service for Kak Channthy, the frontwoman for Cambodian Space Project.
The lead singer of the Cambodian Space Project was killed in a traffic accident when a speeding car hit her in a tuk-tuk.
We woke up to a painful news yesterday. Channthy Kak, the well-loved artist who toured across countries to introduce the music of Cambodia to the world, passed away at 38.
