Be early to catch special guests including “Svay Sar” aka White Mango the 71 year old music legend who has been an active part of the Cambodian music scene since the the 1960’s time of Sin Sisamouth.
Founder of Cambodian Living Arts, Arn Chorn Pond may even grace the stage for a rendition of a Sin Sisamouth classic, while, two of the most impressive emerging female artists, Ouch Savy and Srey Sima will join CSP starlette Srey Thy for a special performance of a rare Cambodian Rock song Kraumon Thang Bei – a rare song that featured no less than three iconic Khmer Divas – Ros Sereysothea, Pan Ron and Ho Meas.
Knyom Mun Sok Jet Te – I’m Unsatisfied – was recorded at Cambodian Living Arts studio and mixed by award winning Australian producer Lindsay Gravina who offered his services after catching a CSP show earlier this year. The superbly packed vinyl pressing is out on Metal Postcard (Hong Kong) and is distributed through legendary UK label Rough Trade. The debut release comes as a milestone for the CSP – In just under a year, the CSP has performed all sorts of venues across the kingdom – from Elephant’s Birthday parties to schools and orphanages, villages, river boats and clubs, as well as being the first local band to tour abroad to Hong Kong and France. The CSP’s future is looking ever more brighter as the band continues to add new music to its repertoire, completes recording for a debut LP and is set to tour internationally with plans for more touring abroad later this year.
For those in the kingdom without turntables, the CSP single is also available as a digital download and available on iTunes. Ltd edition vinyl copies and launch t-shirts will be available on the night.
