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

Weekly Wrap - Commencing Thursday the 14th January 2016


Phnom Skor is the latest project of Vanntin 'Tin' Hoeurn (formerly of Sliten6ix, Dirty Jacks). Tin has teamed up with RJ Marshall (guitar), Danzo Ke’Aloha (bass) and Mike Forster (drums) to create a 'dirty blues' band – mixing up classic 60's and 70's sounds with their own original songs. Tin has an unpredictable and sometimes chaotic stage presence (you never know what the heck he is going to do next) but can always be relied upon to produce a genuine and exciting fusion of Khmer and Western influences. Phnom Skor (which translates as 'Sugar Mountain') will play Sharky Bar this Friday evening.


The guys at Pontoon have pulled in a hip-hop heavyweight for their 5th anniversary celebrations this Friday. DJ Cut Killer made a memorable cameo appearance in the seminal French movie La Haine more than twenty years ago. The Parisian DJ has been rocking beats all over the world ever since, mixing the most audacious and lively hip-hop and rap tunes.

Phnom Penh Underground will be celebrating their second birthday on Saturday with a huge DJ bash on the site of the former lakeside at Boeng Kak in Phnom Penh. The guys at Simone Art Bistro and Develop Boueng Kak are continuing their grass-roots community work in the area, as well as putting on some great outdoor parties! DJs Sequence, Cambo Disco Club, B-Fox, Tim Coates, Donabelle, Nora Haidee and Dr WahWah will all be spinning tunes, long into the night.


British singer-songwriter Billy Page is back in The Kingdom of Wonder, and back at the FCC for an acoustic set each Wednesday evening in January. Check out the excellent video above to learn more about the traveling troubadour and his recent adventures in Saigon.

Film-maker Amit Dubey contacted Leng Pleng to let us know about his recent collaboration with Phnom Penh musicians Miss Sarawan Band, Krom Monster and Tara Mar. Amit is currently editing his latest movie Mind Cage, a tense psychological thriller which features contributions from all those artists. You can contribute directly to getting the movie on to cinema screens in Cambodia via the film's crowdfunding campaign. Check out Amit's video below to hear the story of the film so far.




Whatever you're up to over the next few days... stay safe out there and... see you around the traps!
