Drumming at Sovanna Phum
The drums of Sovanna Phum and the croaky voice of Srey Thy were the offerings from last night. Hanuman and the Big Drum is a show I've watched before, but this version was slightly different and well worth the effort. $5 for an hour at the Sovanna Phum theatre on St 99. They perform every Friday & Saturday with a different show each week. The drummers were very accomplished, with a few monkeys and dancers thrown in for good measure. The finale of making music with odd bits and pieces you find in your kitchen or garage was a great way to end the show. I also managed to meet Kara, one of my online friends for a few years, who is over from California. Then it was off to La Croisette on the riverfront to catch the Cambodian Space Project for the second night in succession. Srey Thy was suffering with a croaky voice but she didn't let that stop her from joining the band on stage to play two sets to a busy restaurant clientele including Soma, who I haven't seen for a few months. I ended the night watching the Euros at Score Bar til the early hours and will be there again tonight for the big crunch game, England v Italy.

The big crunch game didn't go so well....England went out of the Euros on penalties, after a lackluster performance. Grrr.
