Kong Nay w/ Ben Allison

Although banished to slavery in the rice fields, this blind Cambodian legend survived the Khmer Rouge to become the nation's living master of the traditional chapei dong veng, a two-stringed lute. Now in his seventies, Kong Nay sings about everyday Cambodia doings with rough-hewn Mekong Delta authority. Jazz double-bassist Ben Allison joins him for this rare local appearance, a highlight of the ongoing Season of Cambodia arts festival.
