ot to know about music of our neighbor, Cambodia. Sure it used to be a country with brilliant art traditions, from dancing, music to architecture… Quite a strange combination: Cambodian singer Chhom Nimol and the Los Angeles world-music rock-band Dengue Fever.

Together, they brought back popular music of the 60s in Cambodia, which was Khmer music with Western influences, now retrofitted in a new psychedelic style. You’re listening to some songs in Venus On Earth album, selected as one of the best world music records of 2008 by iTunes Store. Beautiful!
