A little while back we posted a few album covers we're referencing for a documentary we're doing a bit of animation for.

Here are some more.

We're animating Ros Serey Sothea for the film.

She was "The Golden Voice" and kind of like the Cambodian Nancy Sinatra -except without the famous dad.

She was born in a village and worked collecting shellfish from the shore until eventually convinced by the townsfolk to enter an American Idol style competition.

She was taken under the wing by Sinn Sisamouth (the Cambodian Phil Spector/Jerry Lewis without the domestic issues).

When the Khmer Rouge took power, she -like most artists and intellectuals -met with a bad end.  The regime not only had her killed but worked to eliminate all traces of her music.
