An eclectic mix of Cambodian music encompassing rock and pop, traditional music and field recording, along with the occasional archive documentary clip.
I am currently living in Cambodia and I want to do my little bit to highlight some of the music which has been produced here, so I have put together a mix which I hope does that. If you have any interest in old rock music from South East Asia, then you will probably recognise some of these tracks but I have tried to include a few less familiar numbers too.
You can listen to the mix here or on Mixcloud at www.mixcloud.com/mrrain and there is a track listing below.
