RGNET1319In the early 1970s the Khmer Rouge systematically destroyed the pop musical culture of Cambodia (and many of the musicians). But survivors and exiles preserved many gems & a new generation has produced the next chapter in the story of psychedelic Khmer-pop, rock and 1960s surf music in Cambodia.
