Convinced of the reverence with which Cambodian music lovers will hold Leonard Cohen, the Mekong Sessions has been screening Live in London to select Cambodian audiences prior to its upcoming national broadcast on Bayon TV.

Last night at the Under the Shade restaurant in Phnom Penh, over 30 Cambodians of all ages sat enthralled through the 3 hour concert as the elegance of the performance filtered through the sultry night air.

Pich Piseth, a 25 year old Cambodian was astounded at the similarities with the great Khmer artists of the pre-Khmer Rouge era, "The songs are beautiful and pull at your heart" he said, "It's very similar to the love songs of Sinn Sisamouth and they never sound old."

Piseth's mother who also watched the now legendary Live in London gig was overwhelmed by the power of the performance, "We are so proud that an artist who is so famous and so loved around the world has chosen to play in Cambodia. This means alot to us to know we are again being recogised as a place of peace and culture."

With market vendors stacking up on Cohen recordings, the Mekong Sessions is certain that the Cambodia Cohen fan Club is just around the corner!
