Welcome to my website !
My name is Bosba PANH and I am a Khmer soprano and composer age 16. I have been performing since age 9 and I am currently studying in the United States at the Walnut Hill School for the Arts (WHS), a preparatory arts high school affiliated with the New England Conservatory (NEC) in Boston.
I started music when I was six with classical guitar, before taking a year later voice lessons, then piano at age 10. I started composing at age 12, but have only started to take it more seriously when I came to WHS. Since then, my works have been performed at the WHS gala in April 2013, and the music I composed "the Enchanted Pavillion" has been played at the Phnom Penh Music Festival on November 9 of 2013 at Meta House. I was told people loved the piece and zillion thanks to Anton Isselhardt, the festival organizer !
2014 - THE YEAR TO SUPPORT SIN SISAMOUTH, OUR LEGENDARY GOLDEN VOICE
I continue to be involved in projects to help my country in performing concerts to raise funds. This year, I am calling for your help to support the family of SIN Sisamouth, Cambodia's golden voice, who perished in 1976 during the genocide years. He is compared to Frank Sinatra or Teresa Teng for the sweetness of his voice, a perfect voice for ballads and folk songs.
Despite his being still today the most famous Cambodian singer, there is no copyrights enforcement in my country so his family lives very modestly. I visited his surviving spouse in 2012 and the interview of their life together, a sad one indeed but another form of love and total loyalty. Watch the video here and please donate to her (see instruction in the YouTube video). Thank you in advance for your help !
Although I am busier today due to my high school studies and preparing for college, I still perform within the WHS and NEC setting and plan to come back to Cambodia and perform in 2015!
