Seven inch record in a full-color sleeve with dance tracks by two of Cambodia’s most celebrated singers, as featured on the critically-acclaimed soundtrack, Don’t Think I’ve Forgotten: Cambodia’s Lost Rock and Roll.
Sinn Sisamouth (1932 – 1975-1979) was the king of Cambodian popular music. Considered to be the silkiest, smoothest Cambodian singer of all time. No one else comes close to matching his productivity as both a singer and a songwriter, or his popularity with the Cambodian people.
Born into a poor farming family in Battambang province, Ros Serey Sothea (1946 – 1975-1979) moved to Phnom Penh at age 17. Her singing and recordings captured Cambodia’s musical heart. Known to have a “ghost voice,” she was often referred to as “the golden voice of the capital.”
