Asia Motion Newsletter - TRIBUTE to Kak Channty ,a friend, a mum, a sister and the soaring voice of the Khmer rock revival

Srey thy, the lead singer of the Cambodian Space Project, an inspiration and icon for all a generation in Cambodia,
passed away in the early hours of the morning of Wednesday the 20th of March 2018.
The singer was killed in a traffic accident in the early hours of the morning.

Channthy was 38. She is survived by her 13-year-old son, Makara, and two brothers, whom she helped support throughout her life.

Channthy became internationally renowned as the front woman for the Cambodian Space Project, a band formed in 2009 that has toured around the world and rejuvenated the Cambodian rock ’n’ roll sound of the 1960s.

She was such a vivacious talented woman, achieved so much in her too short life. All our thoughts are going to her son and family.
Rest in peace beautiful soul
