The Khmer Rouge Survivors’ appearance at WOMAD will be the first time the line-up has ever performed outside of Cambodia

Led by Amnesty International activist and flautist Arn Chorn Pond, The Khmer Rouge Survivors’ appearance at WOMAD will be the first time the line-up has ever performed outside of Cambodia.

As the name suggests, the project features survivors of the Pol Pot regime which claimed the lives of over one million civilians and cruelly targeted the country’s artists, musicians, and intellectuals. The Survivors’ moving debut album They Will Kill You, If You Cry was released in 2016 to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the genocide and their unique South-East Asian blues promises to pack an even more emotional punch live on stage.
