This was the first time for them to perform on such a big stage. They said that they still had a lot of fear, and they did not know what to do in the performance. But because of their consistent rehearsing, we had confidence that they would perform well. And finally, they made it.

They performed as a solo group, as well as with the “Khmer Magic Music Bus” and “Kmeng Khmer” with new melodies.

We composed new melodies and mixed them with the sound of “Phloy”. It was a great success and it was really exciting for the students to be able to mix traditional instruments with modern instruments, but it was even more fun for us to all perform together.
