Laura Mam and the Like Me’s

Saturday evening and Phnom Penh’s haunted Diamond Island, Koh Pich, was the host of California based Khmer band Laura Mam and the Like Me’s. A show everything else than ghosty.

Announcing themselves as playing Cambodian 60’s rock music – a sound mix of Mark Knopfler, Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Cure and the Beach Boys – they had me curious and when starting to play they got my full attention. It would have been even better if I known Khmer and thereby the lyrics. Nevertheless, great stuff. Nothing I thought I would get to see here when stepping on that plane in Sweden in January.
