In the aftermath of the devastating reign of the Khmer Rouge, many observers feared that Khmer art would be all but lost. In recent years, however, the tireless efforts of Cambodian artists both in Cambodia and abroad have brought about a resurgence of both classical and contemporary Khmer art.
Dancing and Music
On this site, there are several photos of both Khmer classical dance and Khmer folk dance in the photo gallery.
Elsewhere on the web, there are several sites devoted to Cambodian music and dance. For Khmer music, Angkor Khmer Music has many MP3 files of popular and classical Cambodian music.
The Cambodian Court Dance Music Page is also of interest.
For information on Khmer dance, the Cambodian Classical Dance Page is a good source of generalinformation.
Painting and Sculpture
Many impressive works of Khmer art can be seen in Phnom Penh's National Museum of Cambodia.Svay Pithoubandith, living in Siem Reap, Cambodia, similarly exemplifies the exacting detail of classical Khmer sculpture.
