Cambodia's Lost Rock and Roll show from WFMU's Monty Hall - Video Simulcast!

Hear this show now: | Add or read comments


Just hit play (the blue arrow) in the video box below, to watch the video of this event!




WFMU had the honor of hosting an incredible concert earlier this week - a celebration of Cambodia's Golden Age of rock and roll, from the mid-60s until the Khmer Rouge literally wiped it out in 1975. And we're streaming the audio and video recording of the concert on tonight's show!

An acclaimed new film, Don't Think I've Forgotten (now playing at IFC Center in the West Village and screening around the country this spring and summer) documents this musical era for the first time.

And director John Pirozzi assembled a remarkable cast of musicians to perform together and help bring the film to life: Members of Cambodia's first guitar band, Baksey Cham Krong, and 70s hard-rockers Drakkar Band; and singers including Sinn Sethakol (singing songs of his iconic grandfather Sinn Sisamouth) and Dengue Fever's Chhom Nimol.

Massive thanks to Monty Hall Producer and Video Director Ruth Hayduk, and our esteemed volunteer production team for this event!

That Persian music was beautiful! Yeas ago I saw a Persian film 'The Drum' which I highly recommend, it's prob on youtube.

The phaser was definitely "stunning" on that one

Mmm incapacitating… - Homer S. tries pepper spray on his eggs
  Sat. 5/2/15 6:51pm Hel:

You're welcome Rob et al. It's a b&w film made circa 1980 and the entire film is a a classical Persian drummer-nothing else. Did a search but can't find it. The film won awards so it's odd that it'snot showing up in a search.

Looks great, sounds great

Great name for a band, I guess.

I'm glad you're enjoying it! Don't think me for this one, I am just the messenger - thank Station Manager Ken for working with the director of the documentary, John Pirozzi, to book this event at WFMU's Monty Hall - plus Ruth Hayduk and all the volunteers who helped out, and the performers of course most of all!
Avatar Sat. 5/2/15 8:26pm Moondogg:

This is incredible. Bought five tickets, but had to miss it due to car accident injuries. I'm glad the music is still alive. I wish the singers/players/writers were here to see and hear their music being so beautifully presented. Thanks for this simulcast. The place looks great.

Sorry about the accident but thanks Moondogg, agreed, and thanks slugluv!

So sorry I missed this live. I'm really enjoying it now. Thanks to everyone who helped this happen!
Avatar    Sat. 5/2/15 8:35pm Rob W:

One thing I learned from the movie is that in the 60s the main source of western pop music influence in Cambodia was French artists (natural since Cambodia had been a French colony until 1953) - but in the 70s people heard the music played on the radio for US soldiers in Vietnam. And Santana apparently became quite popular in Cambodia, among others...

Rob W is my musical inspiration and WFMU hero!

"Don't Think I've Forgotten" is just TOO beautiful
trying to track down DVD copy of 1966 film "Apsara," which features Sinn Sisamouth -- any ideas???
Avatar Sat. 5/2/15 8:57pm Moondogg:

Amazing. I'm crying over here.

Someone mentioned this earlier - will this be archived? :) My parents lived in Cambodia and had no idea of the rock history.
