There are few harp makers in Cambodia because the instrument was only reconstituted for the first time in 2013. We highlight them here with some of their instruments.
Leng Pohy is based in Siem Reap. He is the founder of Authentic Khmer Sculpture. Since 1998, his workshop specializes in stone and wood carving of all sizes.
In 2016, he started to carve some instruments for Sounds of Angkor and finally became one of our main partners making the Angkorian harps. He is now very involved and creative.
Thean Nga is based in Siem Reap. He makes various instruments for Sounds of Angkor and in particular, for what interests us here, the pre-Angkorian harps.
Keo Sonan Kavei and Krang Sila are based in Phnom Penh working in the same workshop. They were our first partners for the reconstruction of the pre-Angkorian and Angkorian harps. They made the first harps in 2013 at the initiative of Patrick Kersalé.
Alongside our manufacturers, we also have partners who make elements that are parts of the harps or realize decorations that sublimate them.
