Beautiful witness of traditional Cambodian dance and music.

The intimate setting enhances the excellent performance by these artists. This is far superior to any of the other dance performances I have seen in Cambodia. We take US study abroad students here and they never fail to be mesmerized by the music and dancing.

The video to start with explaining the history behind the dancing is very interesting and moving. It was in several languages so everyone can understand. The music is fabulous and the dancing was excellent. A personal favourite was the praying mantis dance! Brilliant performance!
