I enjoyed a great performance by this group Bloco Malagasy, a samba percussion group of teenagers trained at the Center of Art and Music of Bel Avenir NGO in Madagascar. They are promoting women’s rights in Cambodia and performed at the social enterprise restaurant Marum. The restaurant works with street children and other marginalized young people since 2005 in Siem Reap, Cambodia.
This was their last day in Siem Reap so I was lucky to catch them. They’re on their way to Phnom Penh today and performing this weekend and next the following dates:
- Saturday, March 16 at Le Jardin restaurant (#16, Street 360, Phnom Penh) at 6 p.m.
- Sunday, March 17 at Meta House (#37 Sothearos Boulevard, Songkhat Tonle Bassak, Khan Chamkarmon, Phnom Penh)
- Saturday, March 23 at Friends the Restaurant (#215 Street 13, Phnom Penh)
You do not have to buy tickets for this show, just a drink or meal at the restaurants. Well worth the performance!
Enjoy the show!
