Srey Thy will pilot the Cambodian Space Project into spacious grooves and Khmer psychedelica in Mullum soon.

When Australian musician/producer Julien Poulson travelled to Cambodia on an Asialink artist residency with the intention to record traditional Khmer ensembles in 2007, he never dreamt what would happen. Then Julien met Srey Thy, a Khmer singer and dancer who grew up in the rice fields and who had never been to school but possessed a unique vocal style.

The Cambodia Space Project was born. Gathering musicians from Cambodia, France and Tasmania to back the idiosyncratic but traditionally-styled vocals of Srey, the Cambodian Space Project has launched itself from the dusty roads of Cambodia across the oceans to America and now Australia.

The Cambodian Space Project is a troupe bonded not only by the diversity of its members’ backgrounds but also by an artistic vision to bridge cultures while exploring new musical frontiers.

A cosmic, psychedelic rock band with Hendrix grooves coupled with the hypnotic Khmer dancing and singing traditions, Srey Thy sings about her homeland, mixing 60s Cambodian rock with Khmer Surin dance grooves, American blues with French Gypsy accordion music, acid rock with reggae. It’s a heady mix.

Interested? (We are...)

The Cambodian Space Project will fire up the Mullum Civic Centre on Friday, January 21, from 8.30pm.

Tickets are $15 at the door. (Discounts for students, children etc.)
