Charity concert to help Koh Pdau fishing village

We spent the last three days at the fishing village of Koh Pdau to give donation from our charity concert "Melodies of Hope" which took place at Pannasastra University on February 11, 2012.

Koh Pdau is a fishing village that has been dramatically affected by climate change and dams so they can not catch as much fish as before. They told us that 10 years ago they could get 30 kilos a night, now it is less than 5 kg.There is no electricity, no tap water.

Life has become harder and their children are suffering, not enough food, not going to school. That's why we did the fund raising to let people know about Koh Pdau, Bak Prear so that we have more solidarity and are more cautious about the damage we do to our environment.

I also learnt how to fish, we biked in the villages and discussed with the villagers. They have never seen the flute that Panhlauv played, I improvised a small recital and the whole village came to the house where we stayed.

The reang tree that is mentioned in the wedding song "sompong".

Vicheaka, who taught me and Panhlauv how to fish.
