All of the music was recording from ethnic minorities in Cambodia living in rural mountainous areas and countryside. The archive was recorded during a study-mission carried out by the Royale University of fine Arts, Phnom Penh, in 1969-1970.
The Bophana Center would like to express our sincere thanks to Mr. Pov Thonevath for providing us with these rare archives.
