Walk to Freedom

This song is getting on a bit now, but its part of a superb soundtrack to the film, The Red Sense, a film released in 2008 by Khmer director Tim Pek. The soundtrack was composed by Robert John Sedky, and has suspenseful music oozing from every pour, high-pitched vocals and tinkling of the sort that my all-time favourite film composer Ennio Morricone made famous in his spaghetti westerns. The main theme song that you can hear in the video, Svaeng Rouk Pop Tmei (aka Walk to Freedom), sung by Khmer pop starlet Meas Soksophea and Phoeurk Chantha, and Jimi Lundy's plaintive Cambodia, both add a welcome, albeit wistful, break from the tension and anxiety imposed by the preceding tracks on the album. It's Sedky's debut film score, which he composed in 2007, and set the bar high for his future work.
