The Cambodian Space Project took to the stage at META House for a further sneak preview on Thursday night, following a screening of Julien's documentary Mekong Delta Blues. Building upon the spontaneous energy of the Alley Cat gig, this was a tighter and punchier performance, with Phnom Penh alumnus Davis taking bass duties, and with the addition of Rattat on digeridoo and percussion. The combo gave just a taste of its feast of 60s style Cambodian rock, with the beautiful Srey Thy charming the crowd and the band pulling out that extra helping of funk that had been hiding away during rehearsals. After a break caused by a grumpy neighbour, the band returned for an extended jam for those few brave souls who were still around.
Look out for the Cambodian Space Project over the next few weeks! Including a river cruise on Boxing Day - tickets from the Alley Cat.
