Singer-Composer Bosba Panh to Research Cambodian Ensemble
Bosba Panh began singing when she was seven. She began composing as a teenager mixing classical Cambodian and Western music. And now as an adult at age 22, her interest shifts to understanding the Cambodian music through academic research. Bosba’s dedication to the arts from a very young age makes her one of the key Cambodian artists who embodies both the theory and physical expression of creativity. In June, a recent graduate of the prestigious New England Conservatory of Music, Bosba dropped by the Voice of America to talk about the creative adventure that is an artist’s life and her relentless effort to understand Cambodia through its arts.
