To promote Cambodia as a destination and showcase the Kingdom’s finest musical heritage, 13 year old Khmer soprano bosbaPANH and the Living National Treasures of Cambodia will stage two special concerts at the Bayon Temple, Angkor Wat, Siem Reap on Friday 25th and Saturday 26th February 2011.  Special guests from Paris, Hong Kong, San Diego and San Jose (USA) will come to Cambodia for these performances. Bayon temple will come to life with an elegant display of light and sound.

 Paying tribute to both known and unknown Khmer artists, surviving master artists and international musicians will join bosbaPANH to take the audience on a musical journey spanning 900 years from Queen Indradevi, wife of King Jayavarman VII – the great builder of Angkor – to Queen Kossamak, mother of King Father Norodom Sihanouk.

Over the centuries, Cambodia’s artists and musicians have inspired and shaped Khmer culture and society.  But decades of conflict led to the disappearance of many leading artists, nearly destroying the transmission of precious cultural knowledge. Staging the concerts at Angkor links today’s performers with Cambodia’s extraordinary archeological heritage.
