More Music

Beyond Cambodian karaoke and power pop, if you look you can find some good stuff.
Here's what I've been listening to.

Krom Skor

"Krom Skor" translates as "Group Drum". Sovanna Phum has been hosting a drumming group for many months now, it must be over a year at least. Now they have recorded their own CD and are selling it for 5 bucks at their store in Phnom Penh.

Sovanna Phum has been collaborating with international arts groups and performers for many years, and are getting pretty good skills in sharing and innovating with Khmer music while at the same time, retaining their knowledge of traditional culture.

And the Khmer Fusion Project (Jazz and traditional musicians) have added a few more MP3s to their site.

Give them a listen, I have yet to find someone who doesn't like this CD. (You can order via credit card!)
