Travel Video: Traditional Cambodian Music from Banteay Kdei Temple, Angkor Archaeological Park

Traditional dances and music have always appealed to tourists and I am no different. I too like a good dose of local music and it is even better when it is based in true traditional style with traditional instruments and by the local people. I got the opportunity to hear such music when I was entering the Banteay Kdei temple inside the Angkor Archaeological Park near Siem Reap in Cambodia.

These guys were playing their local tunes in a bid to sell their DVDs and music CDs. There were some percussion instruments, a string based musical instrument and a metal based sound to form a beautiful sound. Hope you like it when you watch the video.
