O Cambodia

[ Atoll / CD ]

Release Date: Friday 1 February 2013

This most significant cross cultural initiative, initiated by NZ composer and Asian specialist Jack Body, and including eminent composers from each country, forges music from 3 Western classical musicians and three traditional Cambodian musicians.

"This disc which is very well presented, recorded and played is a profoundly moving experience and a salutary lesson, particularly in the context of what is happening today in the Middle East, the trick however, is to learn it. Those who established this project deserve many congratulations and it is quite humbling to note that it is in a small nation like New Zealand that projects such as these can be set in motion and receive the necessary funding to achieve success. The disc deserves to be heard by many for all kinds of reasons, not least musical." (MusicWeb Nov 2014)
