In the 1970’s, during the devastating years of the Pol Pot dictatorship, the beautiful traditions of Cambodia’s artistic community were systematically silenced. In the people’s struggle to survive starvation and brutality in the killing fields, their suppressed creative story lay dormant. Today, the arts are flourishing again.
Voices from the Nations have partnered with CCAMS (an arts school who give hope to street children by giving them a home and schooling in their traditional arts), recording their songs and dances to help tell their story and as a means of funding a new home and creative arts center.
