REPfest World Music Festival

Venue: Heritage Hub, Sala Thoam Chas, Krousar Thmey, Center for Khmer Studies in Siem Reap
Organised: Cambodian Living Arts
An international festival dedicated to world music, drawing artists from around Asia for three days of performances, workshops and forums. This festival brought together artists from around Cambodia and Asia, with a focus on the Greater Mekong, allowing them to share their experiences and skills, and helping to sow the seeds for future collaboration in the region.
With artists from a range of styles and backgrounds, REPfest aimed to inspire those taking part to develop their music creatively, and to share it with new audiences. As well as showcases and performances, there were exchange and improvisation workshops so that the artists could learn from each other, and public workshops where artists engaged with the audience on a more personal level.
