The Mekong Sessions
are slated to begin in November and if ticket prices are to be believed, it'll pull in a stack of cash for the organizers and the beneficiaries, who include the Red Cross and disabled sport. Though AsiaLife splashed it across their latest edition, it's still a bit hush-hush re ticket prices, etc and the word is that pre-sales and VIPs have snaffled most of the seats anyway. Can you believe it? 3,000 tickets sold for Leonard Cohen before it was even announced. Have I been living under a rock? I've never heard the guy sing a note. I must get out more.
Nice to read about the $7,500 that Dengue Fever
helped raise for the coffers of Cambodian Living Arts during their recent visit to Cambodia. Their sold-out Parkway gig on 11 May was the chief reason, playing to a 700-capacity crowd and including chapei master Kong Nai on the same bill. Well done to Dengue Fever and a nice windfall for CLA who do fabulous work in keeping artistic traditions alive and preparing youngsters to succeed the masters.
