Legends Never Die 2 | Sin Sisamouth | Black

from 24.00

Sin Sisamuth was a highly prolific Cambodian singer-songwriter in the 1950s to the 1970s. Widely considered the "King of Khmer music" Sin Sisamuth, along with Ros Sereysothea, Pan Ron, and other artists, was part of a thriving pop music scene in Phnom Penh that blended elements of Khmer traditional music with the sounds of rhythm and blues and rock and roll to make a Westernized sound akin to psychedelic or garage rock. Everything came to a halt when the Khmer Rouge took over in 1975. During the revolution it has been rumored that he was tortured and murdered for refusing to support the revolution's propaganda by writing songs in tribute to Angka (The organization).

Legends never die. The the soul of Cambodia will live forever through his music.
