|Krom and the Chamroeun sisters at Meta House|
Some great Krom-tastic moments as ever with the hauntingly beautiful voices of
Sophea and Sopheak Chamroeun, noir poetry from John Gartland and an
unexpected meet with Kent Davis and his wife, who handed me a
fresh-off-the-press copy of Return to Clay, a 1928 novel by George
Groslier, a man who wore many hats in his time in Cambodia. This was the second night on
the trot at Meta House for me and another opportunity to catch Krom in the act. They will be off to Bangkok for three gigs next month and will be heading to Europe next year. And rightly so. They have developed a wonderful sound - take the song Passion as a great example - and the voices of the Chamroeun sisters take it to another level.
