The Cambodian Space Project is thrilled to be kicking of our Australian Tour with first stop being WOMADelaide.
This is one of the world’s best music and culture festivals and we can’t wait to bring the new Cambodian Space Project show to WOMAD in Adelaide.
We come with fond memories of the last time we played there and of course, had our beautiful founding front woman Kak Channthy. Now in 2024, CSP is performing with vocalists Thyda Chea, Ahwin and local Cambodian dancers who’ll are joining us in an exciting new show and a tribute to the great divas of Cambodia, not least Kak Channthy.
One of Cambodia’s most renowned music exports, the Cambodian Space Project (CSP) formed in 2009 with a mission to sing back to life the lost divas and rock legends of Cambodia’s golden age of rock’n’roll, who were all but wiped out by the Khmer Rouge regime. The band takes the audience on a heady trip through ethnic Khmer styles, psych-rock, motor city funk and Motown-esque pop to the new – totally spaced-out – grooves of Southeast Asia today. Founded by singer Kak Channthy and Tasmanian guitarist Julien Poulson, the CSP has been at the forefront of an astonishing cultural revival in Cambodia. And since Channthy’s death in 2018, the band has vowed to continue, in tribute to Channthy and the lost artists of Cambodia’s Golden Era. Expect an exhilarating live experience as they perform Cambodian dance hall hits from the ’60s to present day.
