Espresso Thmei

Scott and Srey Thy during a brief lull in proceedings. Scott is in pink.
There's a saying that you can't get enough of a good thing. And that holds true as far as Srey Thy and the Cambodian Space Project are concerned. Saturday night's gig was exceptional and tonight's stripped-down version, Espresso Thmei, was just as good. Any combo that is as tight as the one that played at the Paddy Rice bar on the riverside this evening, you would've thought they'd been gigging for ages. No such luxury, this was the full debut appearance of Srey Thy on vocals and Scott Bywater on guitar and harmonica and they simply rocked. Srey Thy belted out her Pan Ron and Khmer hits of the 60s with her signature voice in full flow and not diluted by the plethora of instruments you usually hear with the full band version. She said there were a few bum notes thrown in, but I didn't hear any and was suitably impressed. This duo deserves your full attention next time they are behind the mikes.
The eminently agreeable Srey Thy looks stunning as usual
Scott on guitar and Srey Thy on unique vocals
Srey Thy's songs and delivery style are a perfect match
It was the first performance together of Espresso Thmei and was virtually seamless
A final look at the duo of Srey Thy and Scott, look out for these two near you sometime soon
