Ouch Savy

Savy Ouch

Ouch Savy is one of Cambodian’s most talented and accomplished artists. Only 23, she is the protégée of legendary Master Kong Nai, with whom she has performed in England, Australia and New Zealand. A virtuosic vocalist, she sings several styles of traditional Cambodian music, and plays the chapei dang Dang Veng, a Cambodian long-neck, twostring guitar. She has already released two CDs — Mekong Detal Blues with Master Kong Nai and Sarika Keo with Mater Ieng Sithul. She is recording the third, solo album in Chicago in July 2010 where she performs first time in the United States. She is a recipient of a 2010 Elastic Arts peer teaching grant. She also teaches a traditional singing class to younger Cambodian in Phnom Penh. She sings with chapei dang veng of different styles from legendary chapei vocalist Pouthav Dai and Prach Chhuon with lyrics from Master Kong Nai. Most song lyrics are of educational values. She wrote a song about ‘whatever man can do, woman can do it too’.
