Our vision and mission are to connect and unite Cambodian people through Khmer arts and to promote our arts to local and international audiences.
We collaborate to create a place where a variety of Khmer arts forms could be found and experienced, mostly those that are almost wiped out from Cambodian people’s memory especially from our new generations.
We aim to bring old art forms back to life and to support Khmer artists in any way either financial or mental support. Hence, we believe that through the activities we take action will create a sense of value and understanding of what it means to be Khmer.
WE'RE A SMALL, FRIENDLY AND TALENTED TEAM. WE ARE A GROUP OF ENTHUSIASTIC YOUNG CAMBODIAN ART LOVERS – PLERNG KOB
Khmer Sbek Thom, literally means ‘Khmer Large Skin’, is a genre of Khmer oral music theater or a Khmer shadow theater performance that involves mime, song, music and having to dance. Sbek Thom is a complex shadow performance playing with all songs sung in Khmer language, and the rhythms of music and vivid performance of the show totally well beat the stage. Moreover, the moral values of the people of one nation also represent their culture.
What makes BONN PHUM even special? Bovor Kanha Thleak Toek or Miss Falling into The Water is one of the popular games that people can enjoy playing just like in our country, and it could be found in some other countries as well. It is specially seen in the New Year Days because in this occasion many people gather and visit any aspect ceremony of the festival in pagodas or temples, mostly.
