Sophea & Sopheak
It's a few months old now but this YouTube video of Sophea and Sopheak features two sisters who were part of the Children of Bassac performance troupe and though they talk in their native Khmer, the music is haunting and it's a good excuse to show you more of Sophea, who is a regular performer at my local restaurant, Chayyam. I'm told they are talking about how their art has changed their lives, and Sophea is the one getting made up as a classical dancer at the beginning of the video. At Chayyam, she often performs with Pov, who was one of the dancers in last night's contemporary show.
