13th January 2019: Mol Kamach & Baksey Cham Krong – Pleine Lune

Artist: Mol Kamach & Baksey Cham Krong
Title: Pleine Lune
Language: Khmer
Translation: Full moon

This song is so beautiful. Reminiscent of The Shadows with a hint of Hawaiian guitar thrown in, this was a hit in Cambodia when released in 1964. The album this song appears on, ‘Ne penser qu’à toi’, was re-issued by the fabulous Akuphone. I have only recently discovered this French record label, but will be investigating their output more closely. If you are a fan of great songs like this, then why don’t you have a look?
