It's got so quiet lately I completely missed one: the Cambodian Space Project played at the PSE Charity Party out in Stung Meanchey on Friday 9th. Huge. After a procession of performers from Rock Productions, traditional dancers, and a prize draw for The Krawma, the new stripped down version of the Space Project was unveiled. In the absence of the Space Commander, Mr Pink took up big red, and G-String took the bass. Bong Sak, Bong Thom, the Breton Bandit and The Lovely Irene filled their regular places, and we were joined from Siem Reap by Aya on melodica. Srey Thy was far from daunted by the huge and mostly Khmer crowd, who danced and danced. Apparently the quality of the sound depended upon where in the audience you were ... situation normal ... but it was a big sound nevertheless. And by golly there was dancing afterwards as well.
The next night PSE did it all again, featuring Cacath and Los Poporks - any reports?
