Kong Nay, singing and lute chapey
Kong Nay is one of the last bards in Cambodia. As a holder of this tradition, this folk artist who miraculously escaped the genocide of the Khmers Rouges, tells his story and offers us a critical and humorous vision of contemporary Cambodia. He sings and plays his longnecked lute chapey in a musical style which deserves its nickname: Mekong Blues.
