Jazzy

My love for Phnom Penh is no where exhausted.

Last night we attended a jazz performance at the French Cultural Centre. The performers were Louis Sclavis, a Frenchman who played three instruments from the clarinet family and led the Khmer band of musicians as they played drums, xylophones, and flute, while the dancer, a Cambodian girl named Belle, moved her fingers and wrists with movements so subtle and delicate that they portrayed a sensuality I have never seen expressed through mere hand movements before. The garden where it took place was crowded and my body moved cheerfully to the music. Despite being near tone deaf, I love music passionately.

    You are not tone deaf, you have it inside.
