It was the right decision to see the music and dance event organized by the French Cultural Centre at its premise last Saturday. It was a combination of jazz by Louis Sclavis from France, Khmer traditional music by Phare Ponleu Selpak and Khmer Dance by Khmer contemporary dancer Chumvan Sodhachivy, better known as Belle.
It is very interesting to see the use of Khmer traditional music instruments to mix contemporary music. It was a very great mixture. Dance performance by Belle even more impressive. It was very creative to fasten the slow movements of Apasara dancing style in order to accompany the fast tempo music. It was just amazing.
About an hour before the show began.
