The Cambodian Space Project
The Cambodian Space Project
The CSP is also the first band to release a 45rpm single since 1975 - the year Pol Pot implemented the insane Year Zero policy of the Khmer Rouge and trashed all Cambodian culture while inflicting one of the worst genocides in human history. Srey Thy was born into war and poverty. Like the great Cambodian diva Ros Serey Sothea, Srey Kak Chanthy comes from humble beginnings and moved to Phnom Penh some time ago to find work as a singer. By the time she met Julien Poulson, co-founder of the Cambodian Space Project, she had amassed a great song-book of Cambodian music and was ready to try something new. Poulson had already made several trip to Cambodia before and had dedicated time to making recordings and short films exploring the traditional music of Cambodia as well as the instruments of the Khmer ensemble but like many from the West, had an ear open for Cambodian Rock and was keen to create music that would fit in a space between what once was and what is occurring today. The Cambodian Space Project’s debut single is Knyom Mun Sok Jet Te "I'm Unsatisfied" by Pan Ron. Pan Ron herself was once upon a time, number two in line to the pop music throne and was considered more ‘edgy’ than Ros Sereysothea the Golden Voice of Phnom Penh.
