THANK YOU to all of you for your support in this campaign to Help Young Artists Raise the Roof in Cambodia! It has been fully funded and we have covered the costs for the building of our roof, allowing 120 arts professionals to keep their jobs year-round and encouraging arts students to pursue their way in the arts! #Cambodian #shows #arts #roof #PhnomPenh

Kantaoming music is one of Cambodia’s rarest art forms. The music is played for funerals and features gongs, drums and a uniquely Khmer reed instrument called the srolai. The music is meant to sound like a lullaby, so that the deceased and those who care for them can feel calm as the person enters the after-life.
