Music & Dance

The Cambodian Music is divided into two periods, in the Ancient Khmer Empire period and from the Westernization period to present. Nowadays, both folk, traditional music and modern music exists. Cambodian folk music, in the past, is the combination of the dancer and many traditional instruments like ching (cymbal), roneat (bamboo xylophone), pai au (flute), sralai (oboe), chapey (bass banjo), bronze gong, tro (fiddle) and drums and most of the folk music song refer to Hindu myth and stories. The Cambodian modern music, or popular music, like another country, is affected strongly by the Western, with young singers and modern instruments such as electric or wooden guitars, drums, sound system, etc.

Architecture and sculpture

Cambodia is the home of temples therefore it’s easy to understand that this country boasts an enormous collection of bas-reliefs, statues and wall-carvings. The architectural dominator of Cambodia is the Khmer architecture with many features. The buildings which follow the Khmer architecture are usually built by sandstones, bricks and laterite. The perfect example of the Khmer Architecture is the Angkor Wat with the long wall with carvings; bas-reliefs on it (enclosure), the central part with temples (the sanctuary) with prang style (tall and finger-like).
About the Cambodian sculptures, most of the Cambodian sculptures refers to the Hindu gods like Shiva, Vishnu, the Emperors or describing the Khmer ancients and made from stone.
