Shelby and Cinjun's remake of a Sinn Sisamouth classic 
while in Cambodia in 2009



For 8 months, from 2008-2009, Cinjun and his brother Shelby, also of Remy Zero, 
traveled throughout Cambodia. They were not only inspired by the land and its 
people, but also by  pre-Khmer Rouge era musical greats like Sinn SIsamouth and Ros Sereysothea.  

Sadly, much of the musical progress of the Khmer people was halted by Pol Pot and his regime in the mid-late seventies and even in 2008 the musical voice of the Khmer people, and their traditional instruments were all but lost.




One man, Arn Chorn-Pond, has made it his purpose to restore culturally original music and appreciation to the Khmer people. 
A survivor of the Khmer Rouge, his incredible story is told in the documentary  'The Flute Player' as well as the book "Never Fall Down" by Patricia McCormick.
Arn Chorn-Pond is asking for help to tour Cambodia to heal the Khmer people of their scarred past with music and revive the pride and  use of traditional Khmer musical instruments and performance.
