You'll hear more about it in the next edition of AsiaLife magazine but so you have the heads up, there has been a lot of behind-the-scenes, quiet as a mouse discussions taking place to set up what is being called The Mekong Sessions
. The idea is to hold a series of exclusive benefit concerts by very well-known international music artists in support of the Cambodian Red Cross and disabled sport in the kingdom. These music concerts will be at the Olympic Stadium in Phnom Penh but they won't be cheap. And if you thought Dengue Fever were a big name, you ain't seen nothing yet. Chris Minko, the guy who has forged a path for much of the disabled sport in Cambodia, is heavily involved and with a fair wind, we might just see the first of the concerts before the end of this year. I'm sure AsiaLife in their latest edition this week, will reveal the name of the first superstar to book his place in the spotlight. You can catch up with developments at their website here
For experimental music of a different kind, don't miss Krom Monster's first appearance at the French Cultural Center tonight, starting at 7pm. Expect the unexpected.
