Born in Cambodia, but raised mostly in Long Beach, California, praCh is known as Cambodia’s first rap star. His first album reached number one in Cambodia, but was temporarily banned during election time. His music tells stories about the horror of living under Pol Pot and the ensuing hardships.
On 21 October, 2005, praCh gave a phone interview from the United States with Freemuse intern Meredith Holmgren. Here you can listen to him discuss his views on free expression, his recent trip to Cambodia and observations about the current state of the Khmer arts community.
