Khmer Court Dance
Khmer Court Dance: Cambodian Royal Court Dance
A delightful collection of five authentic dances in the Khmer court repertoire, performed in traditional costume by masters of these dances. The dances include: Buong Suong; Apsara; Chhouy Chhay; Muni Mekhala; and Tep Monorum. Paul Gravath narrates and provides excellent historical background as introduction to each dance. The dances are filmed so that in each solo and group dance, the hands, feet, and body movements can be seen clearly. The dances are accompanied by traditional music performed by the Pinn Peat Ensemble, including instruments such as shawms, xylophones, gongs, barrel drums, metallophone, and small cymbals. 74 minutes.
