"Traditional Cambodian ceremonial orchestras may be divided into two groups: those composed of string & wind instruments & those that are primarily percussion ensembles using keyed metallophones, gongs, & xylophones (pinpeat orchestras). This album, recorded between 1966 & 1968, features both. Historically, the pinpeat orchestras, often with several hundred musicians, performed ceremonial music for the Brahmins (the highest ranking caste) or the king. This recording captures the essence of the distinctive musical forms that have survived since the 11th century.
In addition, Master Srey-Yim performs solos on the tro khmer, a three-string bowed instrument, & the sadev, a gourd monochord, in a folk music orchestra. Also heard is the chapey, a two-string lute that is ideal for accompanying vocal improvisations because of its technical possibilities & the effects of attacking the strings in different ways. The album includes music for weddings, boxing matches, & shadow theater."
