Visions of Angkor: Music and Dance from Cambodia and its Diaspora

Presented by Boston University Global Music Concert Series
College of Fine Arts Concert Hall 855 Commonwealth Avenue , Boston
Free and Open to the Public

BU presents a rare opportunity to encounter artistic traditions that were nearly obliterated during the 1975-79 Khmer Rouge regime. At the concert, Cambodian virtuoso musicians Nhok Sinat and Yim Chanthy will perform music drawn from classical, folk, wedding, and Buddhist ritual repertories. The renowned Angkor Dance Troupe from Lowell, MA will perform Cambodian folk dance as well as the classical Aspara style, cited by UNESCO as one of the world’s pieces of “intangible cultural heritage.” Includes a Post-Concert Discussion on Community Engagement and the Arts in Post-Conflict Settings
