With his flourishes of electric guitar, samplers, and drum machines, Nils Petter Molvaer will draw obvious comparisons to another jazz trumpeter dabbling in dance--Ben Neill--on Khmer. Despite the lineup similarities, Molvaer's sound is unique--samples are used in a subtle, sparse convention, giving this disc a noir-ish feel; beats kick in but never overpower his snaking trumpet solos. Perhaps this disc's secret is the trademark wide-open sound of his label--ECM--or maybe just Molvaer's hypnotic style, which at times harks back to Miles Davis-cool, mystic chamber-music minimalism, and the smoothness of trip-hop. A limited-edition bonus CD contains remixes from the Herbaliser, Mental Overdrive, and Rockers Hi-Fi and is an added treat. In the hands of all three dance crews, the tunes condense, the beats get thicker, and Molvaer's squeaks and solos season the groove. Great stuff. --Jason Verlinde

Being a highly stylized art form and performed mainly by females, Khmer classical dance during the French protectorate era, was confined mainly to the courts of royal palaces being performed by the consorts, concubines, relatives, and attendants of the palace,henceforth the Western names for this art form often make reference to the royal court. Khmer classical dancers are often referred to as apsara dancers, which in the modern sense would be incorrect as the apsara is only a type of character performed by the dancers nowadays.
Khmer classical dancers use stylized movements and gestures to tell a story much like a mime. Many people consider its style vague or abstract. Dancers do not speak or sing; they dance with a slight smile and are never suppose to open their mouths (though a few dramas have brief speaking parts). Khmer classical dance can be compared to French ballet in that it requires years of practice and stretching at a young age so the limbs become very flexible.
Hand gestures in Khmer classical dance are called kbach (meaning style). These hand gestures form a sort of alphabet and represent various things from nature such as fruit, flowers, and leaves. They are used in different combinations, sometimes with accompanying foot movements, to convey different thoughts and concepts. The way in which they are presented, the position of the arm, and the position of the hand relative to the arm can also affect their meaning. Besides hand gestures are gestures which are more specific to their meaning, such as that which is used to represent laughing or flying. These other gestures are performed in different manners depending on which type of character is played.
In Siem Reap, you can find Apsara or Khmer classical dancers in pretty much every restaurant. It's a spectacular thing to see and my advice would be to not miss it. the quality varies depending on the restaurant, so just ask around which one is the best...your tuk-tuk driver will know;)
