Cambodian Living Arts @ Edinburgh Fringe

Sunday, August 31st, 2008

Cambodian Living Arts Master Ieng Sithul and his troupe of young Khmer folk dancers, musicians, and singers are now performing in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival!

This is the first time ever that most of these young performers have had the chance to travel outside of Cambodia; they are one of the strongest classes and terrific, charismatic, and inspiring performers. They’ve been getting terrific reviews:

Please spread the word, and if you’re in the area, please stop by!

Here’s some info on details of their show:

And you can see photos here. Please come if you can, or help us spread the word. I linked as well to a short video profile on one of our students who is attending Edinburgh. The kids are really performing their hearts out, and need your support!

Haydn, Bach… and Chinese traditional music

by PANHLauv, Anton Isselhardt, Hou Gongneng

 

In a country where western classical music is little known, PANHLauv has had the chance since the age of 6 to learn from Chinese and German teachers who have taught him discipline and sensibility. He is now one of the great hopes in Cambodia music.

 

PANHLauv’s teacher Hou Gongneng, a flutist from the Wind Instruments Orchestra of Sichuan, China, is visiting and joins a session where Anton, Hou and PANHLauv celebrate music and friendship beyond borders.
