The Leng Pleng Gig Guide comes out on a Thursday or Friday of every week

Gig Guide - Thursday the 19th of July, 2012


The regular gig at The Quay tonight will be the last time for Rhiannon Johnson. I was lucky enough to catch Rhiannon and Euan there a couple of weeks ago. They have a great set of songs and perform them with a unique warmth and charm. Totally worth getting there for this last gig.

Kheltica return to Paddy Rice as Holliday in Cambodia does to Sharkys on Friday.

On Saturday the traditional Cambodian band Kok Thlok play at Equinox. Great bunch of guys and great musicians. They will play a variety of traditional and contemporary tunes. They will be playing traditional instruments as well as the more electrified versions of instrumentation. They will also play together with other expat musicians from around the traps whom you will probably recognize. So, fundamentally, they are a true fusion band and worth getting to know. Cool!

Also on Saturday Warapo make the trip over from Vietnam again to play at the FCC Phnom Penh. The GhettoBlasters are also back in town and will spin an awesome couple of sets at Pontoon.

Plenty coming up - especially at the Led Zephyr in Sihanoukville who will present a series of gigs in August. If you are planning any trips to the south coast then you might want to coincide with one or more of these gigs. One of these gigs will be the return of Stoned Again - said band of last week. Smokin'!

News in also that there is a new cafe that has opened on Street 57. It is called The Piano and it is an off-shoot from the So Srorsos Music School. They are fairly open about letting guests get up and play. You will probably see Amanda Bloom dance her fingers across the keys there on occasion. Worth checking out.

Leaving you this week with a video of a band called Muk who performed a song made famous by local Khmer heartthrob Preab Sovath on CTN. It is a song called Thngai Bak Rosiel.

From Ted and I here in the back streets of Phnom Penh, have a great weekend, be cool with each other and see you around the traps. Here's this week's gig guide.
