Cambodian Living Arts

Photo by Matthew Wakem

Tonight's show has a few tracks inspired by the Cambodian Living Arts project, a performance art non-profit in Phnom Penh that is bridging the generations and rebooting the cultural brand of Cambodia. The amazing thing is that CLA is giving a voice to the generation almost ruined by the atrocities of the past and helping the youth of Cambodia and the Cambodian diaspora connect with their almost lost culture.

Radio Boise is going to be at the Boise Rec Fest this weekend. Come check out all the things you can do outside in this wide open western playground. Should be lots of skating!
