Theme & Components


Each year, we select a theme that best describes the cultural components we want the public to learn. All planning activities are around that theme. For 2013 event, we are going to explore the post-angkor era: the era of Udong and Long Vek. 

Festival Components

Classical/Folk Dances

Classical/Folk Dances will be performed by the Cambodian American Heritage, Inc. The name and description of dances will be announced later when they are available.

Khmer Traditional Music

The Khmer traditional music is performed by the Mohoree Phirum Ensemble.

Yee Ke Mak Theung Show

We selected several scenes of the Mak Theung musical drama produced by Hang Meas to be our show. These scenes are meant to be both entertaining and educational.  The fundamental values from the show are as follow:

  • Love has no barrier
  • Love cannot be bought
  • Smart approach to administer justice
