Blast off and rock out with The Cambodian Space Project, in Hanuman Spaceman: a high energy, funky, feisty take on contemporary Cambodia.
This extraordinary band has been at the forefront of an astonishing cultural revival in Cambodia, since singer Channthy Kak & musician Julien Poulsen teamed up, to sing back to life the lost divas and rock legends of Cambodia’s golden age of music, all but wiped out by the Khmer Rouge.
But CSP's sound is definitely for the 21st century, mashing tradition with psychedelic rocknroll, rare groove, soul, and trippy visual spectacle. Come see why the mix has wowed audiences in bars, rock festivals and theatres across Asia, Europe and Australia, from MOFO to the Hebbel, from Sydney Festival to BBC Womad.
In Hanuman Spaceman, CSP has teamed with theatre makers Carlos Gomes, Samuel James & producer Intimate Spectacle to make a story in song, images and dreams. A story of escape, adventure, of dreaming big things, and most of all, celebrating life.
