Cambodia blind musicians in Mondolkiri

Traditional folkmusic in Cambodia.


Music, an extension to our souls…

My respect for the performing arts is really deep. I in particular fascinated by musicians, composers, writers and producers who are able to conceptualize an idea that speaks directly to my soul. It happens sometimes that when I listen to an album I turn to repeat a particular song because it has a special meaning to me, It might be reminding me of a particular place or an event that has happen in the past or might be evoking something in my spirit that revives me or brings home a particular subject. the fascinating part is that some of the songs I listen to are from artists singing in a languages that I don’t even understand yet I could feel the state they were in when they were composing or what the expression of the song. At any given time I find myself religiously listening to the tunes of Cesaria Evora, Toumane Diabate , Salif Keita , Alif farka Toure and Yossou Ndou to name a few. All these artists sing in languages I don’t understand. However every time they hit that note I could tell exactly if it’s a happy song, sad song or a song about the appreciation of life.

In my culture every feeling is expressed in song, from suddenness, happiness, anger, love, we have a song for it. This shows the importance of music in our lives as a people. Over the years music has also been used to transfare history from one generation to the other. I’ve heard of stories of how the first textual history of the “Illiad” was penned down through a song by a blind musician “Homer”.
