Batbangers

The Batbangers blend both 1960s Cambodian and a more modern “AC/DC” style of rock. Their music is characterised by power riffs, pumping drums, chunky bass and strong melodies, combined with a mesmerising & frenetic stage presence. They recently performed at Zandari festa in Seoul.

Phare Band

Phare, the Cambodian Circus is well known in Siem Reap for their incredible contortions and acrobatics, but what is less well known is that they have an amazing band. Performers at Phare Circus are graduates of Phare Ponleu Selpak (PPSA), an NGO school and professional arts training centre in Battambang, Cambodia.
