Cambodia: Traditional Music, Vol. 2: Tribe Music, Folk Music and Popular Dances

The album opens with an entrancing tune played on a single reed bamboo flute that enthralls and draws the listener into the musical journey presented in this collection. Recorded in 1979 and compiled by revered composer Chinary Ung, Chinary focuses on capturing and documenting both the songs themselves and the instruments on which the songs were performed for fear that "with the advent of modernization, many kinds of Cambodian music will disappear." Liner notes include detailed information on the musical instruments.
