The Khmer Magic Music Bus in concert
Don’t miss Cambodian Living Arts founder Arn Chorn Pond’s magical new music project – The Khmer Magic Music Bus, stopping for a special concert during our Youth Lit Fest on Sunday 5th at Lotus Pond Villa. The KMMB brings the sounds and instruments of ancient Cambodia to the stage plus colourful stories, told through music, of reconnecting ancient culture with today! that this incredible and exotic traveling roadshow has picked up along the dusty highways, backroads and remote communities across the Kingdom of Cambodia.
3-4pm at Lotus Pond Villa
The Khmer Magic Music Bus intends to carpet Cambodia with music by helping Cambodian master musicians and their students return traditional music performance and education to the people of rural Cambodia, one village at a time.
Our twenty-five passenger bus carries master musicians and their students to the villages of rural Cambodia so they can share the experience of listening to and learning about their musical heritage. The project directly pays Khmer artists, music/video technicians, and the bus driver as well as covering all management, planning and travel expenses for the Khmer team. All expenses during the time the bus travels in the countryside are covered by the project. The US-based team serves in a purely voluntary capacity, neither receiving nor expecting any compensation other than the pleasure taken in the joy created by The Bus in its travels.
Magic Musicians include:
