The Cambodian Space Project “Golden Phoenix” Launch Party sees this extraordinary Phnom Penh based band team up with local legend Jack Howard (Epic Brass, Hunters & Collectors, Midnight Oil ) for the launch of an exciting new musical collaboration. This is a night not to be missed! 

The Cambodian Space Project story reads like some kinda cosmic prophecy foretelling a cataclysmic event. The stratospheric rise of Cambodia’s most renowned music export has caught those witnessing the spectacle of this cosmic cross-culture rock band (CSP) by surprise, not least its founding members. In a strange twist of fate, co-pilots Kak Channthy and Tasmanian guitarist Julien Poulson met in a dimly lit KTV and embarked upon a mission to sing back to life the lost divas and rock legends of Cambodia’s golden age of rock’n’roll, all but wiped out by the genocidal Khmer Rouge regime. This extraordinary band has been at the forefront of an astonishing cultural revival in Cambodia.

The CSP has created a sound full of vibrancy, a heady trip through ethnic Khmer styles, psych-rock, motor city funk and Motownesque pop to the new – totally spaced-out – grooves of Southeast Asia today. No, it’s not a scene from Kill Bill.

With support from Velvet Parade.
