Wonderful Mohori Music!!! Music that Delights the Soul!!!
Kean Chhay Chang | Vic, Australia | 05/30/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Music recoded and produced by Professor Sam Ang Sam's orchestra is very vibrant and spectacular for sure. I found it very beautiful and interesting to hear mohori music. This has to be the first time that I have actually heard a full recording of the traditional mohori orchestras. usually with most Cambodian music genres and styles I tended to get bits and pieces of it. But this one contains a large collection of music and vocals performed by both male and female. Such sheer talent by the artists and musicians. The musical style is similar to that or pin-peat and is closely related however it's not as heavy in tone because in mohori music it's more sweeter and lighter as the music does touch the soul. I found it very enjoyable to hear this type of music in particular. It's very easy to listen to and I give it the thumbs up because of stringed instruments and flutes featuring the mohori music orchestra therefore the sounds are much relaxed and sounds aren't as tense or heavy as well as not stately compared to pin-peat. Mohori music creates a more folkish and relaxed atmosphere about it as well as the beautiful vocals involved. Sounds are very mellow, subtle, crisp and airy. The booklet is wonderful too telling me what the music is and the titles as well. Also the musicians and vocalists get credit for their part that goes into making this wonderful cd. I hope to hear more of Sam Ang Sam's work and his music so keep up the good work... Great music for sleeping or just relaxing as well as killing time too... I like it very much... so enjoy the music while you can..."
Soothing, Savory Stuff!

"What an amazing product! The songs are uniformly well-performed and all exude a very soothing atmosphere. The music just floats along at a steady pace, with the perfect mixtures of flying flutes and meandering xylophones and gongs. I'm not used to listening to Cambodian singing, but both singers have rather pleasant voices (though the woman is a little tinny.)

I only have two qualms with this album: the undersized liner notes and the short 43 minute timespan of the combined eight tracks. However, these are minor flaws - the recordings themselves are flawless. Buy it."
