My name is Bosba and I'm a composer! I started music when I was 5, with classical guitar and by singing folk songs and traditional mohori songs. In 2011, I performed at Angkor Wat, Unesco World Heritage site. At age 15, I left Cambodia for an arts boarding school the United States, the Walnut Hill School for the Arts in Natick, MA, to study classical western music and voice with a scholarship. I am now pursuing my Bachelors at the New England Conservatory of Music (Boston, class of 2019), one of the top music schools in North America. I currently study with Michael Gandolfi and Ken Schaphorst.
I am inspired by music from South-East Asia, jazz and late 19th to 20th century music ( pretty much anything from Debussy, Ravel, Shostakovich to Bernstein, Philip Glass). My music is very lyrical because I grew up as a singer and I blend music from Cambodia with influences from Western Music and jazz. My latest compositions can be found in the Music section of this blog or my soundcloud at www.soundcloud.com/bosbapanh.
Make sure to check you my blog section to read about my summer in Cambodia! It was the first time I was able to return back home after four years in the US, and I have much to share with you.
