I Link With Impunity.

October 16, 2004

A Cambodian freak-out jam; a Vassar girl rants over noodling–

1) Cambodian chapey singers play this kind of weird, joyous, tumbleforth music, alternating improvised sung-rants with wild playing on a two-stringed, guitar-like instrument, the chapey dang veng. Kong Nai is a badass, a blind man, and can be found on the above link. Scroll down a little and click on either of two tunes by the sunglassed, grinning Khmer hipster.
2) I found this on Friendster. A student at Vassar extemporaneously holding forth on some hilarious shit. Enjoy this tune by Leanne Handelsman.
