We should know more about the future of Laura Tevary Mam
and The Like Me's - the all-girl band that took Cambodia by storm last year - pretty soon as I hear Laura is on her way over to Cambodia and planning to perform, solo. The Like Me's grabbed the attention of the Khmer youth and developed a big fan following
with their recreations of classic Khmer tunes and real competence as musicians and performers, and through personal appearances, free gigs and lots of promo, but it went deathly quiet towards the end of last year. Laura has already recorded her debut solo EP, Meet Me In The Rain, after a wildly successful fund-raising effort on Kickstarter (it raised almost $12,000), which has also allowed her to head on over to Cambodia for what will be a solo tour. The only gig that has been announced so far is at The Village in Phnom Penh on 23 November, but we should hear more once she arrives on these shores. Looking forward to it.
